Notice to Samajwadi Party leader over sexist remark against Jaya Prada

Lucknow: Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav on Thursday directed party workers not to make indecent comments against women after the National Commission for Women (NCW) pulled up a party leader for allegedly making sexist remarks against actor-turned-politician Jaya Prada.

SP Sambhal district president Firoz Khan had allegedly said Jaya Prada would "enthral the people of Rampur with her ghungaroos and thumkas". In a short video clip, Khan is heard saying, "Rampur ki shaamein rangeen ho jaayengi ab jab chunavi mahual chalega (Ram-pur's evenings will turn colourful this election season)", seemingly referring to Jaya Prada, who recently joined the BJP.

Taking note, the NCW issued a notice to Khan, seeking an explanation from him for the remarks. Following the incident, Mr Yadav issued a statement saying, "The SP has always given priority to the honour of women and believed in equality of men and women... No party worker should make indecent comments on women.”
