New Delhi: Delhi Commission for Women chief Swati Maliwal on Friday expressed her disagreement with Communist Party of India leader Atul Kumar Anjan's view that a condom advertisement featuring Sunny Leone would lead to an increase in rape cases in the country.

On microblogging website Twitter, Maliwal, however, said that many advertisements on TV channels are highly objectionable.

Meanwhile, Sunny Leone hit back at CPI leader Atul Kumar Anjan and urged "people of power" to focus on helping those in need instead.

"Sad when people of power waste their time and energy on me, instead of focusing on helping those in need!!! #SHAME #EPICFAIL," Sunny, a former adult film star, wrote on Twitter on Thursday.

Anjan, national secretary of the Communist Party of India, said while addressing a rally in Uttar Pradesh`s Ghazipur that a condom advertisement featuring the "Jism 2" star will be the cause for more rapes in the country.

Anjan claimed that Sunny`s condom advertisement will trigger the tendency among men to commit rapes and that it was developing sexuality and ruining sensibilities.
