Venting out his anger, Robert Vadra has said that Vinay Katiyar’s remarks are an expose of ‘shameful mindset’. 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.”
The sexist comments drew four corner criticism. Reacting to the comments, NCW Chief Lalitha Kumaramangalam said, “Men need to realise that women are not just about their looks and comparing any 2 women according to their looks is totally ridiculous & it’s not acceptable.”
Here’s what he said:
