New Delhi: Making a personal attack, Union minister Ramdas Athawale on Friday said that Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati does not know the importance of family as she was not married. He further said that had Mayawati been married she would have known how to handle a husband.
Athawale said, “Mayawati is making remarks about Modi Ji and his wife. She (Mayawati) is not married, she doesn't know what a family is, had she been married she would have known how to handle a husband. We respect Mayawati, she should not make such statements."
The remark of Athwale came in the reponse of Mayawati’s recent comment that Prime Minister Narendra Modi “left his wife for political gains”.
Ealier, while addressing media BSP chief said, “Narendra Modi was silent on Alwar gangrape case. He's trying to play dirty politics over it. So that in the elections his party can be benefited. It is extremely shamefully. How can he respect others' sisters and wives when he has left his own wife for political gains?"
BSP Supremo had launched the personal attack on Prime Minister Modi after he accused her of “shedding crocodile tears” in the Alwar gang rape case and dared her to withdraw support from the Congress government in Rajasthan over the incident. She asked PM "Please do not shed crocodile tears. If you are serious, why don't you withdraw support of the Congress government in Rajasthan?”
