Rabri Devi Reacts Sharply To ‘Veil’ Remark of BJP Leader

BJP Leader


Patna: Senior BJP leader and Union Minister Ashwini Kumar Choubey, who is contesting Lok Sabha election from Buxar seat in Bihar, on Saturday created a controversy by wrongly advising RJD chief Lalu Prasad’s wife and former Chief Minister Rabri Devi to remain in veil. “Rabri Devi is my sister-in-law, she should remain in veil,” Choubey said while addressing an election meeting in Sitamarhi parliamentary constituency in support of the candidate of Janata Dal-United (JD-U) — a National Democratic Alliance (NDA) ally. Soon after Choubey’s statement came, Rabri Devi reacted sharply, saying: “Choubeji, why you hate women in veil and why are you afraid of veiled women? Is it what women empowerment lessons of PM Narendra Modi teach?” she said. (IANS)
