Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh assembly`s Congress opposition leader Ajay Singh said here on Wednesday that the comment made by MP State Industries Minister Kailash Vijaywargiya against Congress MP Meenakshi Natarajan only showed his base mentality.
In a statement, he said that this was not at all surprising, because during BJP rule, women and girls felt "unsafe, disrespected and full of shame".
Ajay said that by their behaviour, BJP ministers in Madhya Pradesh had merely proved that they don`t respect women "under any circumstances".
He said that recently, Kunwar Vijay Shah was removed from the minister`s post after he had made a comment against MP Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan`s wife.
He said that had Shah not commented on Chouhan`s wife, Sadhna, the whole MP government would have favoured him, just like it had favoured ministers like Vijaywargiya, Ajay Vishnoi and Manohar Untwal who made derogatory statements against women.
