Lucknow: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday urged Janata Dal (United) leader Sharad Yadav to stop demeaning women and contrasting their position in society with the value of vote.

BJP leader Rita Bahuguna Joshi said,"Such a remark doesn't do justice to the position he commands. It's a highly problematic remark, and extremely demeaning to women."

 

However, JD(U) party leader Kailash said Yadav's comment was being misinterpreted.

"What he meant to say was that a vote and a daughter should be given in good hands. A wrong choice for the daughter can topple her entire household. Similarly, a wrong vote can put the entire state at stake", he clarified.

Addressing a public gathering on Tuesday in Bihar's capital, former JD(U) president Sharad Yadav said, "Honour of vote is bigger and important than honour of daughter. If daughter's honour is compromised, it only affects the village or community but if the vote's honour is compromised, it impacts the entire nation."
