Mulayam Singh Yadav's younger daughter-in-law Aparna Yadav, Congress MLA from Rae Bareli Aditi Singh today condemned newly-inducted BJP leader Naresh Agrawal's remark directed at actor Jaya Bachchan.
Participating in a panel debate at India TV Samvaad Conclave, organised in Lucknow to assess the works done by one-year old Yogi Adityanath government, the leaders said that Agrawal’s remark are unacceptable.
“A leader of his stature shouldn't have used such words for Jayaji. I think, he said it in a fit of rage. Otherwise, he is a very forward looking man and has been working for the education of girl child in his area,” Aparna Yadav said.
“I have nothing to say on Naresh Agrawal's comments because this is not related to Congress. But as a woman, I definitely condemn such statement from a person like Naresh Agrawal,” Aditi Singh said.
UP's industrial development minister Satish Mahana, another member on the panel, too condemned Agrawal’s remark.
"We do not support such statements against anyone, especially women," he said.
“I can assure that there will never be such a comment from Naresh Agrawal in future. We will not be looking back at what anyone has said, but we will move forward and will ensure no such behaviour in future,” the Minister added.
Mahana further said that situation in Uttar Pradesh has improved after the BJP formed the government.
“With time, UP govt has done everything and has made all efforts to improve the situation of the state. Uttar Pradesh was earlier known due to the criminal activities and law and order imbalance,” he said.
