Lalu, who opposed the Women's Reservation Bill, calls RSS sexist

Speed News Desk | Updated on: 14 September 2015, 13:45 IST

Mounting an attack on the RSS, RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav tweeted that the Sangh is a sexist organisation, which also promotes castesim. Targeting the right-wing organisation in his tweets, Lalu questioned why a woman or a member from a non-Brahmin caste has never been allowed to head the organisation.



But here's a reminder

This is rather ironical as the statement is being made by Yadav, who along with Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh, had adamantly opposed the Women's Reservation Bill in Parliament. In a speech laced with sarcasm in the Lok Sabha in 2010, he had even dubbed the Bill as an onion that will bring tears to the eyes of the members once they peel it.

Lalu even called the bill a "political blunder" and alleged that it was a conspiracy hatched by the BJP and Congress to suppress the representation of women from the OBC, ST/SC and Muslim communities.
