Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP, Harish Dwivedi made a sexist remark over Congress general secretary of Uttar Pradesh East, Priyanka Gandhi.

Speaking to the media, Dwivedi said, "Rahul fail hain toh Priyanka bhi fail hain. Jab Priyanka Gandhi Delhi mein rehti hain toh jeans aur top mein rehti hai aur jab shetra mein aati hain toh saree aur sindoor laga kar aati hain." (Priyanka Gandhi wears jeans and t-shirt in Delhi, but when she visits her constituency she adorns the saree and sindoor).

Ever since Priyanka was appointed as the AICC general secretary for UP East, She has been at the receiving end of such remarks.

Earlier, BJP leader and Bihar minister Vinod Narayan Jha took a dig at Priyanka's political entry and said that “votes cannot be won on the basis of beautiful faces.” He further said that she is beautiful but does not hold any political achievement.

BJP MP Subramanian Swamy also made an objectionable remark against Priyanka, asserting that “she is suffering from a bipolar personality disorder”. Swamy also claimed that Priyanka has temper issue and she beats up people after losing her cool, news agency ANI reported.
