NCW notice to Rahul over ‘mahila’ remark on Sitharaman

NEW DELHI: National Commission for Women (NCW) issued a notice to Congress President over his statement “PM ran away & asked a ‘mahila’ (Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman) to defend him.”

The Congress president made the shocking remark while addressing a rally at Jaipur, Rajasthan. He had said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi got a woman to defend him in Parliament on Rafale fighter jet deal. Rahul was referring to the speech delivered by the defence minister in Lok Sabha last week.

“The watchman with a 56-inch chest ran away and told a woman, Sitharaman ji, defend me. I won’t be able to defend myself, defend me. For two and a half hours, the woman could not defend him. I had asked a straight question answer ‘yes or no’, but she couldn’t answer,” said Gandhi.


Rekha had said that the Congress president has shown his misogynistic attitude by making this remark and as a politician he should not make such a statement.
