In an attempt to deride PM Modi, Congress spokesperson exposes his sexism on Women’s Day

This tweet by Sanjay Jha drew outraged responses from several netizens who didn't fail to notice the anti-woman bias in the tweet.

On International Women’s Day, even as Rahul Gandhi makes a gaffe-filled speech about empowerment women, Congress spokesperson Sanjay Jha exposed his sexism and misogyny while trying to deride Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

On 8th March 2019, Sanjay Jha the National Spokesperson of Congress tweeted “on a lighter note” wishing Prime Minister Modi a “Happy Women’s Day” and called him a “Drama Queen”. He ended his tweet with “He will be blabbering somewhere soon”.

While Congress has harboured the culture of making personal remarks against Prime Minister Modi for as long as one can remember, with this statement, Congress spokesperson Sanjay Jha only exposed his own sexist mindset.

In a bid to insult PM Modi, Sanjay Jha insinuated that comparing a man to a woman can be considered a pejorative. In fact, he even insinuated that women are “drama queens” and “blabber”. This type-casting of women, that has been encouraged for a few laughs has helped in institutionalised marginalisation of women. To insinuate that being compared to a woman is an insult, that too on International Women’s Day” only proves the anti-woman mindset that the Congress party harbours while talking tall about women empowerment.

This tweet by Sanjay Jha drew outraged responses from several netizens who didn’t fail to notice the anti-woman bias in the tweet.

Congress’ facade of women empowerment has been exposed several times in the past owing to their actions. Rahul Gandhi has often gone to town talking about how Congress’ prime focus is the empowerment of women, however, when Rahul Gandhi’s close aide, Nikhil Alva was recently booked for sexual harassment, Rahul Gandhi had not issued a single statement.

Earlier too, an FIR was lodged against one Congress IT cell worker named Chirag Patnaik for sexually harassing a female colleague. In her complaint, the aggrieved woman had reportedly written how the Congress IT cell head, Divya Spandan, had then mentally harassed the victim instead of offering her any support.

In October, another sexual harassment case came into light, in which NSUI chief Fairoz Khan had reportedly stepped down from his post following charges of sexual misconduct. NSUI is the student wing of the Indian National Congress.

In fact what could be seen as the biggest irony was when the Congress mouthpiece, National Herald, which was then busy pontificating about the #MeToo movement, audaciously chose not to mention allegations against its own editor.
