New Delhi: A day after Sharad Yadav made a derogatory remark against her, Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje asked the Election Commission to take against the Loktantrik Janata Dal (LJD) leader. Speaking to reporters, Raje said that Yadav did not only hurt her but also insulted all women.
“I think not for my sake but to set an example of future. It’s very important that election commission should take cognisance of the things like this. Also I can’t see this being used particularly against women. I feel insulted and I feel that women are insulted,” Raje told reporters, after casting her vote today.
Earlier on Thursday, Yadav, said,”Vasundhra ko aaram do, bahut thak gayi hain, bahut moti ho gayi hain, pehle patli thi. Humare Madhya Pradesh ki beti hai. (Vasundhara needs to rest. She is very tired. She has gained a lot of weight. Earlier, she was thin. She is our Madhya Pradesh’s daughter).”
This was not the first time that Yadav had made such derogatory remark. Earlier in 2017, he had said that the ‘honour of a vote is bigger and important that the honour of daughter’. In 2015, while speaking in the Rajya Sabha, he made a comparison of the women in north and south. He said, “The body of women from the south is as good as beautiful they are. They (women) in our region are not that good as those (in south) know dancing.”
