Congress leader Pankaj Punia insults women, mocks the Re 1 sanitary napkin scheme announced by PM Modi

Disgusted by Punia's misogynistic remark, social media users tore into the Congress leader, calling him disgusting and a mentally sick person. People urged Twitter India to suspend his account.

Modi government, under the Pradhan Mantri Bhartiya Janaushdhi Pariyojna (PMBJP), has managed to provide affordable sanitary napkins to poor women through Jan Aushadhi centres for just one rupee each. During his independence day speech, PM Narendra Modi had mentioned about this initiative by his government. This step taken by the central government to make menstrual hygiene accessible and available to girls and women in rural areas received plaudits from social media users who hailed PM Modi for taking a step forward in breaking pre-defined taboos against menstruation.

This gratitude and admiration extended towards PM Modi, seemed to have rattled Haryana Congress leader Pankaj Punia, who took to Twitter to write: “Santre (a term used to refer to RSS supporters), are you’ll asleep? just a reminder, don’t forget to wear the Re 1 sanitary pad someday”.

Congress leader Pankaj Punia’s now deleted Tweet

Displaying his mediocre mindset, the Congress leader mocked the RSS supporters with his crass, sexist jibe asking them to use the Re 1 sanitary napkin made available to poor women by the Modi government.

For the uninitiated, many use ‘santre’ to refer to people associated with RSS, because the RSS headquarter is in Nagpur which is famous for oranges.

Through his highly misogynistic and insensitive Tweet, Pankaj Punia not only mocked BJP and its supporters but also insulted women in general.

Disgusted by Punia’s misogynistic remark, social media users tore into the Congress leader. Some called him “disgusting” and a “mentally sick person”, who deserves applause from his boss Priyanka Gandhi Vadra.

While some urged Twitter India to take cognisance and suspend the Congress leader’s account for passing such an obscene remark on women.

The social media users in their fit of rage lashed out at the Congress leader saying that if he cannot respect women, he should not be calling his mother “maa”.

Congress leader Pankaj Punia insults BJP and its supporters

This is, however, not the first time social media users have expressed resentment against the Congress leader. In the past also thousands of social media users had condemned the Congress leader for his hateful, vile and blatant Hinduphobic Tweet. Expressing his hate for BJP and its supporters, the Congress leader in May Tweeted: “These people, (BJP and its supporters) are the ones who exhume corpses and rape them. They get naked in front of their daughters and masturbate while chanting Jai Shri Ram slogans.” This blatantly anti-Hindu, and hateful tweet of Punia had created a huge controversy.

However, the Congress leader had remained unaffected. He went on a twitter spree of liking and retweeting the tweets of Congress supporters. He had even shared tweets where his supporters had shared that he has stated nothing wrong and the allegations are absolutely correct.

This hateful Tweet had, however, led to the Congress leader’s arrest. Police in Karnal had arrested Punia on May 21, for allegedly “hurting religious feelings” and “promoting enmity between different groups on ground of religion” through his tweet.
