Kolkata: The member of the All India Trinamool Congress Abhishek Banerjee, who is currently serving as an MP, has been heavily criticised by the Bharatiya Janata Party leader Locket Chatterjee for his misogynist speech.
In the speech, Banerjee can be clearly heard saying, “You need to be daring for being a Trinamool cadre. All the rest wear sarees and bangles and sits at home.”
Sharing a footage of his speech, Bengal BJP questioned if woman of Trinamool Congress considers woman as “weak”. She also stated that Banerjee has “crossed” all limits to insult a “Bhartiya Naari“.
Chatterjee calling a press conference, criticised Banerjee and his party TMC.
She questioned, “What does Abhishek Banerjee think? He can insult women he thinks? Women who wear saree and bangles are not weak, he must know. I want to ask his Pishi, Mamata Banerjee who is Bengal CM is also a woman and wears saree, is he insulting her too? Or is it that only she is respectable women and all the other women in Bengal can be insulted? I want to tell you (Abhishek Banerjee) women are not weak and you should be ashamed of uttering such words.”
