New Delhi, April 18: The Congress on Monday demanded an apology from Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for making “disparaging, distasteful and dishonourable” remarks against Indian women on his website.

The party also want the senior leaders of Bharatiya Janata Party including Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah to ask Adiyanath to not make such remarks in the future.

Criticising Yogi’s views, Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said that the mindset of the BJP was reflected in the article written by UP CM. In the article, Adityanath wrote, India’s women always require protection.

Surjewal told media persons that Adityanath said that as energy cannot be left uncontrolled since it can be destructive, women also can never be left independent. The views are shocking said Surjewal.

Citing the article, Surjewala said it is shocking that UP CM believes that Indian women do not need independence but protection and channelisation.

He (Adityanath) does not end here. He also says a women always need to be protected – be it by her father, by her husband or by her son – and goes on to say that a woman does not deserve independence or right to decide for herself,” said Congress leader.

The most bizzarre comment by Congress leader said the most shocking thing said by Adityanath was that if men get qualities of women then they turn divine but if women get qualities of men, then they become a “rakshas (demon)”.

“He says that if a woman become powerful, if a woman is brave, if a woman adopts shaurya then she becomes the devil,” Surjewala said.

Noting such remarks have never been made by any elected representative in the country’s history, he said this was a “clear insult” not to women of India but of the entire population of the country.

“It reflects BJP’s anti-women mindset coming from none less than BJP’s mascot Adityanath ji,” Surjewala said, asking if BJP leaders had forgotten the tales of bravery associated with goddesses.

Surjewala also said that there had been brave women freedom fighters as also women political leaders including Indira Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi, Sushma Swaraj, Mayawati and Mamata Banerjee.

“Yogi Adityanath should immediately apologise to women for his disparaging, distatateful and dishonourable remarks and forthwith withdraw this article from his website without any conditions,” he said.
