The National Commission for Women (NCW) may take legal action against the Congress chief Rahul Gandhi over his disrespectful remark on Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman.

Speaking to media NCW Chairperson Rekha Sharma said, “We will send a letter to Rahul Gandhi tomorrow morning asking him to clarify on what grounds he made such a remark. As a politician, he cannot make such a statement that shows a misogynistic attitude."

Sharma also took her twitter handle to thrash the Congress president, “What is Rahul Gandhi trying to imply with his misogynistic statement: “ek mahila say kaha meri raksha kiijiye”? Does he think women are weak? The irony is calling an accomplished defence minister of the largest democracy a weak person.”
