has also written to
the the Election Commission of India
for “necessary action”.
Citing several media reports on the matter, the NCW said in a statement that “the commission strongly condemns this irresponsible and disparaging statement made by the leader. The words used in the video are highly defamatory and shows disrespect towards the dignity of a woman.” “At a time when we want more women to enter politics, such disrespectful remarks against a woman leader, that too from a person holding such a responsible position is very unfortunate,” it noted.
