Speaking against the #MeToo movement and describing it a wrong practice in India, Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) MP Udit Raj has said on Tuesday that women habitually take 2-4 lakhs, level allegations on men and then pick another man.

"Habitually women take 2-4 lakhs, level allegations on men and then pick another man. I accept it is in man’s nature. But are women perfect? Can it not be misused? A man’s life gets destroyed because of this," Raj said in an interview with ANI.

Earlier this morning, Raj in a Hindi tweet said, "The #MeTo campaign is important but what if someone accuses any individual after 10 years? After years how can it be possible to verify and investigate? It must be considered that it can ruin the image of the person who has been accused. It is the beginning of a wrong practice."

Contrary to Raj opinions, supporting the #MeToo movement Union Minister for Women and Child Development, Maneka Gandhi on Monday said that I'm happy that #MeToo campaign has started in India to encourage women to speak about sexual harassment.

"Now a Me Too campaign has started and I'm very happy that it has started. I hope it won't go out of control in the sense that we target people who've offended us in some way. But I think women are responsible and anger at sexual molestation never goes away," Gandhi said.
