Expelled JD (U) Leader Sharad Yadav sparked a controversy by body-shaming Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje. During the campaigning, He commented: 'Let's give some rest to Vasundhara Raje. She looks tired and became fat as well. Earlier, She used to be slim'.
Vasundhara Raje reached the Polling Station on Friday along with her Son and Daughter-in-Law. After casting her vote, Chief Minister told she was shocked to know such an experienced leader and someone who is close to her family made those comments. 'I treat it as an insult to all the women. Election Commission has to take action so that nobody would repeat something of that sort again,' she said.
Mr. Yadav claimed his comments weren't derogatory in any way and he had just joked. 'When I met her personally, I told her that she is gaining weight. Have no intention to hurt her,' he clarified.
Surveys predicted the defeat of BJP Government in Rajasthan. Will this controversy improve the poll prospects of BJP?
