Mumbai: Nationalist Congress Party`s women`s
wing on Saturday condemned the remarks made by Mumbai BJP president
Raj Purohit against Ankita Rane, the girl who had shot the
video of a paani-puri vendor allegedly peeing into a jug on
his handcart in neighbouring Thane last month.

The footage, aired by some news channels, led to MNS
cadres targeting pani-puri vendors at many places.

Purohit later said at a public meeting that the girl was
shameless to have watched a man urinating.

"The remark also led to a dispute between Maharashtrians
and North Indians," NCP women`s wing`s president and MLA
Vidyatai Chavan, and Mumbai unit`s president Chitra Wagh said
in a statement here.

"In order to woo a vote bank, Purohit made the remark
which has angered women. The BJP leaders, known for making
allegations without any evidence and creating a mountain out
of a molehill, have kept silent this time," they alleged.

"Women from all over the country are praising Rane`s
daring, and have stood by her," the statement added.
