New Delhi: There is no dearth of sexist remarks made by political class in India every other day. A new addition to this category is an inane comment by senior CPI leader Atul Anjan who believes that the reason for rise in rape cases in the country is repeated telecast of actress Sunny Leone's condom advertisement.

Addressing a gathering, Anjan says that Sunny who hails from Australia (which is factually wrong) has worked in vulgar films and was later launched in Bollywood by director Mahesh Bhatt. He also said that he once watched her porn video and felt sick.

“Open the idiot box and you'll see woman called Sunny Leone. She is the heroine of the world's most vulgar movies. I puked after watching her movie. Nowadays, one of her advertisements is being telecast on the screen where she is seen lying down on beach and promoting a condom brand.This advertisement develops sexually infected mindset and finishes off your sensibility. If such advertisements will continue to be shown on television then rape cases will certainly be an increase in rape cases,” claims Anjan.
