Smriti Irani said, "I object to something. The one who was given the chance to speak before me displayed indecency before leaving. It is only a misogynistic man who can give a flying kiss to a Parliament which seats female members of Parliament. Such undignified conduct was never before seen in the Parliament of the country..."

Calling Rahul Gandhi ‘misogynistic’, Smriti Irani said, "I have a qualm. He misbehaved. Only a misogynistic man can give a flying kiss to female parliamentarians. Representative of the family he comes from…He broadcasted what he and his party feel about women…Such an instance was never witnessed before. This shows what he thinks of women. This is obscene."

BJP women ministers and MPs led Union Minister of State for Agriculture & Farmers' Welfare Shobha Karandlaje also lodged a formal complaint with the Speaker.
