Taking strong exception to BJP MP Vinay Katiyar’s sexist remarks on Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi on Wednesday, Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu said nobody is expected to make personal comments, particularly on women. Condemning Katiyar’s remarks where he said there are “prettier campaigners” than her, Naidu distanced himself from the BJP leader’s comments and told the media the BJP does not subscribe to it. “Remarks of both Vinay Katiyar and Sharad Pawar are totally unacceptable. Condemn it,” Naidu told news agency ANI.

While addressing an event in Patna yesterday Sharad Yadav had said, “If daughter’s prestige is compromised, it will only affect a village and an area but if the vote’s prestige is compromised or sold then it impacts the entire nation and the province.”

Coming down heavily on Katiyar, Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said BJP has “insulted” India’s womanhood and such conduct, behaviour and words prove BJP’s mentality. “BJP has insulted India’s womanhood. Such conduct, behaviour and words prove BJP’s mentality. Time for PM Modi and Amit Shah to apologise,” he said.

Katiyar courted controversy earlier today when he said there are ‘prettier campaigners’ than her. “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,” said Vadra.
