Girls Can Reproduce At 15, Why Raise Age For Marriage?: Congress MLA

Indore: Former minister and Congress leader Sajjan Singh Verma has asked why should the marriage age of girls be increased when girls can reproduce at the age of 15 years as well.
Verma said, “Doctors say that even a 15-years-old girl can reproduce, then what is the need to increase the marriage age of girls to 21 years? Has Shivraj become a bigger doctor”.
Verma was reacting to a statement made by Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Monday.
At a ‘Nari Samman’ program on Monday, CM Chouhan had said that the marriage age of girls should be increased from 18 to 21 years.
The former minister also accused the BJP government in the state of “failing to protect minor girls”.
“Madhya Pradesh tops in the number of rapes against minors. Instead of taking strict action in such cases, the chief minister is playing politics full of hypocrisy,” he said, reported news agency PTI.
Reacting to Verma’s remarks, Madhya Pradesh BJP”s media panelist Neha Bagga said the MLA had insulted daughters of India.
“Did he forget that his party’s president is a woman? Priyanka Gandhi is also a woman? I urge Sonia Gandhi to direct Verma to apologise in public and sack him from the party,” PTI quoted her saying.
