“Be A Man,” Rahul Gandhi Said To PM. BJP Responds With #MisogynistRahul

 

At a rally in Rajasthan on Wednesday, Rahul Gandhi had mocked PM Modi saying he had a "mahila (woman)" defend him in the Rafale debate in parliament.

NEW DELHI: 

Rahul Gandhi has provoked criticism with his sexist comments on Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman while targeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the Rafale deal. The comments mark a "new low", said Union Minister Sushma Swaraj. Another minister, Smriti Irani, tweeted with the hashtag #MisogynistRahul.

At a rally in Rajasthan on Wednesday, the Congress chief had mocked PM Modi saying he had a "mahila (woman)" defend him in the Rafale debate in parliament.

"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 Mr Gandhi, using the word 'mahila' several times.

PM Modi accused Rahul Gandhi of insulting "India's first woman defence minister".

"For the first time, a daughter of the county has become defence minister. It is a matter of pride. Our defence minister silenced all the opposition parties in parliament (on Rafale) and exposed their lies. They were so stunned that now they are insulting a woman defence minister. They are insulting India's women power," PM Modi said at a rally in Agra.
