TMC slams Kailash Vijayvargiya over misogynistic tweet against Mamata Banerjee

News Desk: The Trinamool Congress (TMC) on Saturday hit out at BJP’s national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya over his tweet in which he shared a photo of West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee cooking food with some women.

Sharing the photo on Twitter, Kailash Vijayvargiya wrote, “Didi (Mamata Banerjee) has started doing the work that she would eventually do after five months.”

Hitting out at Vijayvargiya, the TMC said his remarks are “misogynistic” and “show the true colours of the BJP”.

“If you are a woman and you have aspirations to join active politics, remember, our country is plagued with misogynists from the BJP like these who plan to send women back to the kitchen. Can’t imagine the lack of respect that women in Kailash Vijayvargiya’s family must be facing,” TMC Lok Sabha MP Kakoli G Dastidar tweeted.

Writing in a similar vein, TMC leader Shashi Panja tweeted, “BJP shows their true colours again. This is what they think of the only sitting female CM in India. No wonder our women are not safe under their rule. Before your misogyny strikes again, remind yourselves of the chaiwala who’s now your boss.”

Actor-turned politician and TMC MP Nusrat Jahan Ruhi tweeted, “Shri Kailash Vijayvargiya’s comments are outright misogynistic. BJP crossed the mark by insulting every single woman who cooks, provides for families and has aspirations. Mamata Banerjee is the only female CM in India at present and once again, BJP targets and abuses her.”
