Congress leader tweets a sexist and misogynist tweet on Smriti Irani after fake news circular is withdrawn

Yesterday, the Information and Broadcasting Ministry issued directives to curb the fake news menace, which led to a major public meltdown of the celebrity journalists of India, who are otherwise vocally against fake news. However, in less than 24 hours, the directive was withdrawn by the ministry as the Prime Minister’s office directed that such decisions should be taken by bodies such as Press Council of India.

Amidst all this, Maharashtra Congress President, Sanjay Nirupam tweeted an extremely misogynist and condescending tweet referring to Smriti Irani as ‘Bahurani’ (daughter in law), which seems like a reference to very popular serial starring Irani, ‘Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi.

Nirupam got called out by Twitterati for his sexist remark against Irani.

Usual Congress cheerleaders also called him out on his choice of words.

He even got reminded of the virtues of civility.
