Prime Minister Narendra Modi Wednesday tore into Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar over his inhabitants control remarks and questioned the silence of I.N.D.I.A bloc on it.
Addressing a political rally in poll-bound Madhya Pradesh’s Guna, PM Modi mentioned: “A senior leader of the I.N.D.I alliance, ‘Ghamandiya Gathbandhan’ used indecent language for women inside Assembly yesterday. They are not ashamed. No leader of the I.N.D.I.A bloc said a single word against it. People who think like this about women, can they do anything good for you?”
He additional mentioned, Nitish Kumar, “in the presence of mothers and sisters in Bihar Assembly, spoke such vulgar language which cannot be imagined.”
Earlier on Wednesday, Nitish Kumar provided a proof within the Bihar Assembly and mentioned “I have expressed my regret while talking to journalists outside the House. I am ready to do so again. If my words have caused any hurt, I condemn myself.”
“The context in which I had made the remarks must not be lost sight of. I have always been a strong votary of women’s education and it was a eureka moment for me when I saw a direct correlation between education levels among women and fertility rate,” the Bihar CM added.
On Tuesday, Nitish Kumar embroiled himself into an argument for his remarks within the Bihar Assembly, as he pressured upon the significance of schooling amongst girls to control the inhabitants.
Nitish Kumar had put ahead a vivid description within the Assembly of how an informed girl can cease her husband throughout sexual activity.
“The husband’s acts led to more births. However, with education, a woman knows how to restrain him… this is the reason the numbers (of births) are coming down…You, journalists also understand it well. Earlier it (fertility rate) was 4.3, but it has now reached 2.9. And, soon we will reach 2,” the Bihar CM had defined.
