In a sharp response to RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat's statement on divorce, Congress' Abhishek Manu Singhvi on Monday has said that a woman in a bad marriage should be encouraged to get out. He added that RSS is the "think tank" of the ruling party, and therefore they should be more responsible in making statements like these. Bhagwat had on Sunday said that "divorce is more in educated and affluent families."
Mohan Bhagwat being chief of the organization that is a think tank to the ruling party must be more responsible with his comments. A woman in a bad marriage must be encouraged to get out & has nothing to do with econ status.— Abhishek Singhvi (@DrAMSinghvi) February 17, 2020
Addressing the RSS workers in Ahmedabad, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat had said that divorce cases have increased in the recent years. He said: "Nowadays the number of divorce cases have increased a lot. People fight over trifle issues. The cases of divorce are more in educated and affluent families because with education and affluence comes arrogance, as a result of which families fall apart. The society also falls apart because society is also a family," Bhagwat was quoted as saying in a statement issued by the RSS.
