Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje on December 7 slammed Former JD(U) leader Sharad Yadav for body-shaming her. CM Raje said that Yadav did not only hurt her but also insulted all women and had set a bad example for youngsters after using such a language.
The CM further urged the Election Commission (EC) to take cognizance of the misogynistic and sexist comments made by former leader Yadav.
“I think not for my sake but to set an example of future, it’s very important that election commission should take cognizance of the things like this. Also, I can’t see this being used particularly against women. I feel insulted and I feel that women are insulted,” she said.
Nahar Singh Maheshwari, state chief of BJP’S election cell, filed a complaint with the election commission on behalf of the BJP.
The CM further said, “I am absolutely shocked that such an experienced leader and the one who had such close relations with our family; there cannot be a worse thing that he couldn’t control his tongue. The example of this goes to youngsters and we don’t want that any of our younger generations to use such language.”
Yadav sparked a controversy on December 6 when he called Raje “fat” while appealing to voters in the poll-bound state to not vote for BJP.
