New Delhi: Union Minister Smriti Irani on Monday said that the Gandhi family always remain silent on issues against women and that they will not take any action against Congress leader Kamal Nath for his derogatory remark against BJP Minister Imarti Devi.
“I find absolutely no justification that Kamal Nath ji can give for using such derogatory word against a female political activist. For the life of me, I cannot understand why the Gandhi family chooses to be absolutely silent on this issue,” Irani told ANI.
“This is not the first time when a congress leader from Madhya Pradesh has spoken so horridly about a woman in politics. I am sure that everyone remembers that Digvijaya SIngh called a female activist, who was a part of his own party and organization, as ‘taanch maal’,” she said.
“The fact that the Gandhi family is absolutely quiet on this issue is significant because be it Digvijaya Singh or Kamal Nath, anytime that they have spoken ill about women in our country, the Gandhi family remained absolutely quiet,” Irani added.
