NCW chief criticises Navjot Singh Sidhu for his 'bride' comment against PM Narendra Modi

New Delhi, May 11 (IBNS): The National Commission for Women on Saturday criticised Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu for comparing Indian PM Narendra Modi with a bride who pretends to work.

NCW Chairperson Rekha Sharma tweeted: "Strongly condemn @sherryontopp s comment. It shows his poor mentality towards women. Does he mean women only make roties and Khankao churies? One side Indian women are breaking every glass ceiling and Mr Sidhu can only see her through his misogynist glasses."

Sidhu triggers controversy:

Sidhu, a former BJP leader, has triggered a controversy with his remark made against the PM.

"Modiji is like that bride who makes less rotis but makes more noise so that the neighbourhood knows she is working. This is exactly what has happened in the Narendra Modi government," Sidhu, who quit the BJP in 2016, has been quoted by India Today.

BJP slams:

Hitting back at Sidhu, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra termed the remark as "sexist". "Women only make rotis? New bride only make rotis? This is the mindset of the Congress party," Patra said.

In another controversy, Sidhu called the ruling dispensation as "Kaala Angrez (black Britishers)".

"Congress is the party that gave freedom to the country; it is the party of Maulana Azad and Mahatma Gandhi. They gave us freedom from the white and the people of Indore will free this country from 'Kale Angrez' (black Britishers)," Sidhu said as quoted by the media outlet.
