The moment a woman contends for power, people start talking about her looks and her wardrobe
New Delhi: This time it is Priyanka Gandhi Vadra. Had it been the first time, perhaps it would have been surprising. But since elections are around the corner, and women are contesting, many such remarks are expected to be floating around. On Wednesday, senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Vinay Katiyar stoked a controversy by saying his party had more “beautiful" star campaigners than Congress’s Priyanka. His exact words when a reporter asked him a question on whether Priyanka would make a huge difference to the campaign, were: “What difference will it make? We have more beautiful star campaigners... heroines, artistes... they are better."
