Goa Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar has denied making any sexist comment related to some nurses. Parsekar reportedly said he had never advised the nurses not to protest in the sun as it would darken their complexions.
One of the nurses had accused the chief minister of making the shocking remark.
Parsekar had said, “Hunger strike in sun will make you dark and ruin marital prospects”.
Minister of State for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) Giriraj Singh also landed himself in another political controversy earlier today, when he racially targeted Congress President Sonia Gandhi.
Sitting among a group of his supporters in Hajipur, Singh asked jocularly whether Sonia’s “white skin” had been her ticket to securing the top job in the Congress Party.
Stoking the controversy further, he further queried, “If Rajiv (Gandhi) had married a Nigerian, things would have been different.”
