Crass, Says Sharad Pawar’s Party As It Slams Maharashtra Agriculture Minister Abdul Sattar’s Remarks On Supriya Sule


NCP MP Supriya Sule has not reacted to minister Abdul Sattar’s comment against her


An offensive comment by Maharashtra’s Agriculture Minister Abdul Sattar against Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Supriya Sule on a regional television channel has triggered a major political controversy. Terming the comment as “crass”, NCP has demanded that Chief Minister Eknath Shinde drop Mr Sattar from his Cabinet.

NCP workers led by MLA Vidya Chavan held a protest-demonstration outside Mr Sattar’s residence today. They also demanded that an FIR be filed against the minister for his objectionable comment against Ms Sule, NCP’s Baramati MP.

Reacting to the controversy, Ms Sule’s husband, Sadanand Sule, tweeted, saying: “So the mysoginistic leaders continue their tirade against Supriya and by default all women, who stand up to their macho behaviour and expose their character and abilities.”

“First it was go work in the kitchen and elsewhere, & now this statement by a sitting cabinet Minister in Maharashtra tantamounts to giving her money- the conjecture is well established,” the tweet added.

“Keep up the good work Supriya, more power to you and other women,” he added.

Facing flak, Mr Sattar expressed regret if his comment hurt anyone, but maintained that he did not make any remark against Ms Sule, the daughter of NCP chief Sharad Pawar.

Mr Sattar, who belongs to ‘Balasahebanchi Shiv Sena’, led by Chief Minister Shinde, said he did not make any remarks against women.

Mr Sattar, who represents the Sillod constituency in Aurangabad district, allegedly used a derogatory word referring to Ms Sule when reporters asked him about “khoke” (boxes of money) jibe, implying a purported exchange of money when the Shiv Sena faction led by Mr Shinde revolted against the party leadership headed by Uddhav Thackeray.

Another NCP leader, Eknath Khadse, also condemned Mr Sattar’s comment and said the Chief Minister should teach some manners to the agriculture minister.
