As soon Priyanka Gandhi Vadra made her political debut as Congress’s general secretary of Eastern UP, mixed comments had come towards her row. On Friday, Bihar Minister made a ‘sexist’ comments on Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and landed in to controversy.

Vinod Jha, Bihar BJP leader, says Priyanka Gandhi is just a pretty face with zero political knowledge. "Priyanka Gandhi is very beautiful, but has no other talent that I can see, neither does she have the political experience," Mr Jha was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

"She must be what, 37-38, or maybe older, 44. Till this age, she has no political achievement. Yes, she is good-looking, God has given her that. But how much can she exploit that," the minister said.

Earlier, Deputy CM Sushil Modi, a senior BJP leader also attacked Priyanka Gandhi over her political debut. He said that Congress was feeling happy "over the induction of a woman with a tainted life partner".

"If a person could become as capable as someone else merely by resembling him or her, by now we would have had many more Virat Kohlis and Amitabh Bachchans. Duplicates do not work in politics. Priyanka Gandhi might resemble Indira Gandhi, but there is a big difference," Mr Modi said.

"Priyanka's businessman husband's irregular land transactions are spread across two states and he is facing probes. If the Congress wants to exult over the induction of a woman with a tainted life partner, it is most welcome to do so," he added.
