As Rahul Gandhi took a jibe over PM Modi in yesterday’s rally, the National Commission of Women has issued notice to the Congress president demanding to explain his comments.

Rahul Gandhi, in a rally in Jaipur, had claimed that PM Modi rescued himself from the debate in Parliament on Rafale jet deal and sent a woman to defend him and his party from the direct questions of the Opposition.

National Commission of Women’s chairperson Rekha Sharma has said “We've asked explanation from Rahul Gandhi for why he said what he said y'day in tweets.The statement was pathetic, sexist & misogynistic. That's why we've sent him a notice.He have to explain what does he mean when he is trying to talk low of women.”

Sharma added that “We've asked explanation from Rahul Gandhi for why he said what he said y'day in tweets. The statement was pathetic, sexist & misogynistic. That's why we've sent him a notice. He has to explain what does he mean when he is trying to talk low of women.”

Rahul Gandhi in the rally had targeted PM Narendra Modi and his silence over the Rafale deal and he pointed that PM remained absent during the debate in the lower house and asked a woman to defend him.

Gandhi said, “The watchman with a 56-inch chest ran away and told a woman, Sitharaman ji, defend me. I won't be able to defend myself, defend me. For two and a half hours, the woman could not defend him. I had asked a straight question - answer yes or no - but she couldn't answer.”

Rahul had tweeted after PM Modi’s rally in Agra that “With all due respect Modi Ji, in our culture respect for women begins at home. Stop shaking. Be a man and answer my question: Did the Air Force and Defence Ministry object when you bypassed the original Rafale deal?”
