“Disparaging & atrocious remarks of Vinay Kaṭiyar on Priyankaji reflect the petty and insulting culture of BJP that commodifies women. To adjudge India’s women by physical features and not by their capacity, capability, strength & sacrifice proves the lowly BJP mentality. BJP has insulted India’s womanhood. Such conduct, behaviour & words prove BJP’s mentality. Time for PM Modi & Amit Shah to apologize,” he said in a series of tweets.

Congress President Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law and husband of Priyanka Gandhi Robert Vadra today slammed Katiyar for his disparaging remarks saying, “We all need to respect women and accept them as equals instead of commoditising and objectifying them. As a society, we need to bring in a change. Vinay Katiyar should publically apologise for his remarks.”
