Meanwhile, Sharad Yadav, while addressing to the gathering of people in Bihar said that it is ‘necessary to understand about the importance of ballot paper. The integrity of vote is bigger than the integrity of daughter’.
He did not stop here, Yadav continued, if a daughter looses honour, whole village gets effected but if a vote gets sold than it is the honour of the country that is lost. And the dreams that we have seen for future cannot be fulfilled.
Justifying himself over the statement that he had made, Yadav said, “Love should be the same for both daughter and vote. I did not say anything wrong, the way you love your daughter, in the same manner you should also love your vote, only then a good nation and a good government can be formed.”
National Commission for Women issued notice to the senior JD (U) leader Sharad Yadav over his statement “Beti ki izzat se vote ki izzat badi hai” in Patna. Reacting on a statement, BJP said,’Sharad Yadav should apologize’. Election Commission should intervene in the matter, demands lawyer Abha Singh.
