Madhya Pradesh state minister and Congress leader PC Sharma is in trouble over his ‘sexist’ comments on BJP MP and actress Hema Malini.
PC Sharma had compared the Madhya Pradesh roads to BJP’s national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya’s cheeks and promised to make them as Hema Malini’s cheeks. He meant that he would make Madhya Pradesh roads as “smooth and soft” as Hema Malini’s cheeks.
PC Sharma had made those remarks while he was inspecting roads at Habibganj area in Bhopal along with Public Works Development (PWD) minister Sajjan Verma.
Sharma claimed that the roads in the state were built on par with Washington but he said the roads were filled with potholes owing to incessant rains. He said CM Kamal Nath had instructed to repair the roads within 15 days and the roads will be made as smooth as Hema ji’s cheeks.
With such a deregatory comment coming from a state minister objectifying women and her body parts, Opposition leaders are demanding an unconditional apology. Congress top leaders are also caught off guard with PC Sharma’s comments on woman leader Hema Malini.
