Women MPs United in RS against Sharad Yadav over Sexist Remarks

New Delhi, March 16: Women MPs in the Rajya Sabha were seen united against the sexist remarks made by JDU chief Sharad Yadav demanding an apology from him. However, the leader remained defiant and refused to do so.

Demanding an apology from Yadav, Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani appealed to him not to make any comment on anyone's skin colour. Since he is a senior member of the House, such kind of remarks send a wrong message to people, she said.

Smriti was backed by DMK leader Kanimozhi, who said that the women members of all the parties demand an apology from Yadav.

However, Yadav said that he will not apologise as he did not say anything that will disrespect women. He said that he has the highest respect towards women.

He claimed that he had said last week, "Women with dark complexion are more in number. Even in world, they are more in number. And for that, I am ready to debate with any power of the world".
