Patna: Amid the already politically heated atmosphere ahead of the election season, Janata Dal United (JDU) leader Shared Yadav on Wednesday drew flak over a comment that he made while addressing a gathering in Patna.
Comparing the importance of a vote then women’s image, Sharad Yadav said, “The value of a vote has a greater importance than the value of one’s daughter image.
“A vote’s honour is more important than Women’s. Loss of a vote is grave then loss of women’s honour,” Sharad Yadav said.
Speaking on the importance of a vote, the JDU leader said, “There is a need to make people understand about the importance and functions of a ballot paper in a big way.”
“If a women’s honour is violated, her neighbourhood  or society loses its honour but if a vote is sold then the country’s honour is at stake.”
Reacting to Sharad Yada’s remarks, National Commission for Women (NCW) chief said, “Daughters have equal rights, will act against Sharad Yadav.”
However, Bihar Women Commission has defended Yadav over his comments and said that the comments made by him were not intentional.
