THE LADIES FINGER gives the finger to politicians and their charming attitudes towards women.
Yesterday in Parliament, Sharad Yadav, head of the Janata Dal (United) and member of the Rajya Sabha, tried to prove he was cool. During a debate on the Insurance Bill, he broke off to talk about south Indian women. What this had to do with the matter at hand is questionable, but here’s what the Indian Express reported from Parliament:
The women of the south are dark but they are… their bodies…”
At this point members sitting around him tried to bring him back to the topic at hand with cries of “Sharadji Bill”. But, Yadav was not finished yet and talked about the “dancing skills” of south India women.
Soon, Trinamool Congress’s Derek O’Brien frantically waved at Yadav to stop.
Want to bet that when he spoke of “dancing skills”, this is what he had in mind?
But it didn’t end there.
