Digvijaya makes ‘sexist’ remark on Congress MP
Mandsaur: Congress leader Digvijaya Singh on Friday made a somewhat ‘sexist’ remark at a rally in Madhya Pradesh. Speaking at a public rally in Mandsaur, Madhya Pradesh, he called Congress MP and Rahul aide Meenakshi Natarajan a ‘tanch maal’ or a good product.
“Meenakshi Natarajan is kind-hearted, simple and honest. I have been noticing since yesterday she is concerned about everybody. I am an old jeweller in the field of politics and I know very well which jewel is genuine and which is a fake,” Digvijaya said.
However, Natarajan said the remark was not offensive. “There’s nothing wrong with what Digvijaya Singh has said. He has appreciated my work, nothing offensive in it. He is a big leader and I invited him to my constituency,” she said.
