Bihar BJP leader's Comments on Priyanka Gandhi
Priyanka Gandhi Vadra was back in politics after being appointed as the general secretary. However, a BJP leader with his controversial remarks has created a buzz I media. senior BJP leader and Bihar minister Vinod Narain Jha said on Friday that Priyanka has no other quality except being “very beautiful” and the party should remember that beauty does not garner votes.
Jha said, “Except for being beautiful, I see no quality that Priyanka Gandhi Vadra may be credited with. Nature has showered its bounty on her. But the Congress should remember that beauty does not garner votes. She is also a novice and her husband faces serious corruption charges”.
Such comments made were criticized by everyone with many political leaders slamming him for his sexist comments.
JD-U MLC Ashok Choudhary said, "This is definitely not a remark we would approve of. Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has an undeniable charisma and aura which may or may not bring desired results in the elections. But the way she has been spoken about does not appear to be in good taste."
RJD national vice-president Raghuvansh Prasad Singh said the remark is deplorable. The minister should be immediately sacked by Nitish Kumar, else there will be serious consequences, he said.
“I would like to caution women in the BJP rank and file that in the midst of such perverts they must worry about their own security and dignity," RJD MLA and spokesperson Ejya Yadav said.
