Jaipur: Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje on Friday, responding to expelled Janata Dal (United) leader Sharad Yadav’s body shaming comment about her, said that she has been insulted. The BJP leader also said that Yadav’s comment was an insult to all women.

The BJP also condemned Yadav’s remarks as sexist and filed a complaint with the election commission demanding action against him.

Yadav, while campaigning in Rajasthan's Alwar on December 5, body shamed Raje. "Vasundhra ko aaram do, bahut thak gayi hain, bahut moti ho gayi hain, pehle patli thi. Humare Madhya Pradesh ki beti hai.” (Please give Vasundhara some rest, she is tired, she has grown fat, she was thinner earlier. She is Madhya Pradesh's daughter),” said Yadav.

However, this is not the first time that Yadav made such a remark. Earlier, Sharad Yadav, a key constituent of the Mahagathbandhan, made a racist remark while talking about the complexion of south Indian women during a parliament debate in 2015.
