Sharad Yadav Remark: Janata Dal (United) leader Sharad Yadav is surrounded with controversies to his shameful remark over women in Patna saying “ Beti ki izzat se vote ki izzat badi hai” honour of vote comes above the honour of daughters. The video has released by ANI agency in which he has seen giving a statement while addressing party workers in Patna.
“Wo thik hone mein ye jo ballot paper hai, yaad rakho iske baare mein sab jagah bade paimane pe batane or samjhane ki jarurat hai. Ye beti ki izzat se bhi vote ki izzat badhi hai. Beti ki izzat jaegi, toh gaon or mohalle ki izzat jaegi. Aur vote ek bar bik gaya, or ek baar gadbad hogaya toh ilake ki, desh ki aabaroo or aane wala sapna kabhi poora nahi hoga,” Yadav said.
Yadav Remark earned wrath on social media on his remark
Yadav’s weird reason to make a comparison between the two, in his own words, is that “if daughter’s honour is compromised, it only affects the village or community but if the vote’s honour is compromised, it impacts the entire nation”. Yadav for his remark earned wrath on social media.
Sharad Yadav Remark: KC Tyagi supports Yadav saying the statement has been misinterpreted
Backing Sharad Yadav, his party colleague KC Tyagi said his comment should not be taken in a wrong way.

National Commission for Women has sent a notice to JDU leader on his disappointing remarks. NCW Chief Lalitha Kumaramangalam said a notice will be served asking him to appear before the commission.
Sharad Yadav is currently a member of Rajya Sabha and was president of JDU. His party came to the power in 2015 after forming an alliance with RJD and Congress.
