New Delhi, Aug 10 : National Commission for Women (NCW) chairperson Rekha Sharma on Saturday said Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar should give an explanation on his controversial statement regarding women. Without mentioning Mr Khattar' name, the NCW chief tweeted,'Why their imagination ends at women and their complexion and looks? How they open their big mouth and give these stupid remarks for women? Why people choose them to power? I certainly will ask for his explanation'.
Speaking at an event in Fatehabad on Friday, Mr Khattar said people were claiming that Kashmiri women can be brought to the state for marriage now that Jammu and Kashmir’s special status was revoked. 'You know Haryana is infamous for its bad sex ratio and female foeticide, but we started a campaign that brought our sex ratio up from 850 to 933. This is a big work of social change.
Anyone, young and old alike, can understand how this poor sex ratio would create a problem in the future...that there will be fewer women and more men,' Mr Khattar had said. 'So our minister O P Dhankar said we will have to bring girls from Bihar. Now some people are saying Kashmir has been opened, we can bring girls from Kashmir also. Jokes aside, if sex ratio is fine, then there will be balance in society,' he added. UNI
