Delhi: NCW seeks FIR against Mahua Moitra, writes to Speaker Om Birla demanding action over ‘pajama’ remark against Rekha Sharma

Sharma was seen at the site, with someone carrying an umbrella for her. Journalist Nidhi Razdan on X wanted to know why the chairman did not hold the umbrella herself. Moitra responded to Razdan's post on X, commenting, "She's too busy holding up her boss's pajamas."

On Friday, the 5th of July, the National Commission for Women (NCW) took suo moto cognizance of the derogatory remark made by TMC MP Mahua Moitra against Rekha Sharma, Chairperson, NCW, and demanded strict action against the MP. The NCW wrote to LS Speaker Om Birla and condemned the remarks made by the TMC MP.

“The crude remarks are outrageous and a violation of a woman’s right to dignity. The Commission observed that this remark attracts Section 79 of the Bharatiya Nyay Sanhita, 2023. NCW strongly condemns these defamatory remarks and requests strict action against Ms Moitra. An FIR should be registered against Ms Moitra and a detailed action report should be communicated to the Commission within 3 days,” NCW tweeted.

As per ANI, the complaint has also been made to Delhi Police Commissioner Sanjay Arora. As per the reports, Moitra made derogatory remarks against Sharma as the latter attempted to visit Hathras to take stock of the situation after the stampede.

Sharma was seen at the site, with someone carrying an umbrella for her. Journalist Nidhi Razdan on X wanted to know why the chairman did not hold the umbrella herself. Moitra responded to Razdan’s post on X, commenting, “She’s too busy holding up her boss’s pajamas.”

Responding to NCW’s complaint, Moitra stated no regrets. Instead, she posed a challenge to Delhi Police to get to her in the next three days. “Come on Delhi Police please take action immediately on these suo moto orders. Am in Nadia in case you need me in the next 3 days to make a quick arrest. I Can Hold My Own Umbrella,” she tweeted.

Meanwhile, the BJP has demanded Moitra’s resignation. BJP’s Shehzad Poonawalla said, “MP Mahua Moitra who justified & remained silent during Sandeshkhali, Chopra Talibani flogging, silent on Swati Maliwal now makes a disgusting comment at another woman that too at the NCW Chief! Imagine if a BJP MP had said this.. all hell would break loose!! MAHUA MOITRA SHOULD BE SACKED BY TMC! Will Priyanka Vadra, Rahul Gandhi, Kharge ji, Sonia Gandhi, Priyanka Chaturvedi, and AAP call this out? Will Mamata Didi act on her ? Nope just like they remained silent on Sandeshkhali & Chopra.”
