Priyanka Gandhi sexist taunt: BJP leader Vinay Katiyar sparks outrage, twitterati rage over row

Leaders with regressive thinking. Sexist taunts. Who really respects women- BJP, Congress or JDU?

The sexist remark row that was started on January 24 by JDU leader Sharad Yadav has taken a whole new turn. Yadav made a horrific sexist remark against women while addressing his party people by saying, “Beti ki izzat se vote ki izzat badi hai.” Earlier today senior BJP leader Vinay Katiyar targeted Priyanka Gandhi Vadra by his sexist taunt while saying that “there are many other prettier campaigners than Priyanka.” All this was just not enough so Congress leader RS Surjewala also decided to jump in the mix and said, “Atrocious remarks show petty & lowly mindset of BJP’s leadership towards women of India. PM must apologise.”

Why are they suddenly so interested into women and women campaigners? Where does PM Narendra Modi fix in this situation? Why does someone else has to apologise for something that Vinay Katiyar said? How can we expect to grow when the leaders who hold such important positions have such regressive thinking. While this was enough to spark some more fire, twitteratis took on RS Surjewala’s statement which received some vulgar comments.

INC member, RS Surjewala praised Priyanka Gandhi’s reply against the sexist comment.

Here are some twitter reactions for the whole situation-

    Regressive thinking of Indian politicians is something which still abstains India from being a progressive nation. I wonder why BJP members always come up with such ist remarks. This is the scenario for which women demand equality. If men plunge into politics then that's very usual and normal but if a female gets involved in politics then what is so strange about it and why are they subjected to such vociferous remarks.
