In a shocking controversy amid the Lok Sabha polls, Congress leader Ajay Singh has hurled sexist and derogatory remarks against BJP sitting MP from Madhya Pradesh's Sidhi, Riti Pathak.
While addressing a rally in the Lok Sabha constituency, the Congress leader objectified the BP MP, referring to her as "maal". Speaking at the gathering, Ajay Singh also alleged that after winning from the Sidhi seat, Riti Pathak has not visited the constituency even once.
"Pathak ji came in the last elections. She got a ticket from BJP. She was in the air reciting Modi's name. Everyone fall into pray of Modi's promise for 15 lakhs. Then she became the MP, however after becoming the MP, did she return back to the constituency? Neither she returned, nor she contributed anything towards the constituency. We have experienced her tenure. She was not a 'good maal'," Congress leader Ajay Singh said in Madhya Pradesh rally.
Ajay Singh is the son of Congress leader, former Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh and former Union Minister of Human Resource Development Kunwar Arjun Singh
Congress leaders have been in the past, making sexist remarks against BJP leaders. Earlier, Congress president Rahul Gandhi had made sexist remarks against Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman.
"The Prime Minister with the 56-inch-chest didn't come even once to the people's court - the Parliament. We smashed the Raksha Mantri's speech. 56-inch-chest Prime Minister said to a woman, Sitharaman ji 'protect me', I will not be able to protect myself". - as said by Rahul Gandhi in the rally.
Meanwhile, Madhya Pradesh will go to polls in four stages during phase 4, 5, 6 and 7 scheduled on April 29, May 6, May 12 and May 19 respectively. Counting of votes will take place on May 23.
