This is an anti-women government: Renuka Chowdhury

    New Delhi: Congress leader Renuka Chowdhury is not happy with Prime Minister’s remarks in the Parliament. She said that Prime Minister’s remarks denigrated the status of a woman. Prime Minister Modi, during his speech in Rajya Sabha on Wednesday, took a swipe at the Congress leader over her loud laughter at his claim that the idea of Aadhaar was conceptualised during the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government.

    Modi has asked the Rajya Sabha chairman not to stop Chowdhury from laughing during his speech, he said, “Ramayan serial ke baad aisi hansi sunne ka saubhagya aaj jaake mila hai (After Ramayan serial, we have got the privilege of hearing this kind of laughter today).

    Hitting back at the Prime Minister, Chowdhury told a news agency that he has once made a long speech against Aadhar card publicly. Now he is saying that Aadhar was conceptualized when Advani Ji was there. This shocking claim made me laugh. He passed a personal comment against me. Denigrating a status of a woman is a crime. It is now established beyond doubt that Bharatiya Janata Party is against women. How can a Prime Minister speak like this? This shows his culture. I can’t go to that extent.”

    She said that it is a “Mahila Virodhi” sarkar,”If he would have spoken this outside the Parliament, there would have been a case against him according to law.”
