When Vidudhalai Siruthai Katchi (VCK) leader Thirumavalavan spoke at a recent event, his comments about women caused a great deal of controversy. The BJP in particular has strongly condemned Thirumavalavan. And the hashtag depicting Thirumavalavan very badly became a trend on Twitter. Thirumavalavan was criticized by many on this hashtag.
actress Khushbu, who recently joined the BJP, met reporters at the BJP headquarters in Chennai today. Then she said: Is it true that Vidudhalai Siruthai Katchi of Tamil Eelam (VCK) leader Thirumavalavan insulted women of one religion? What he said was very wrong.
Why doesn’t the leader, who criticizes the change in the party, condemn the disparaging remarks about women? Why is the DMK, which claims to have worked for the advancement of women, not opening its mouth about it? Why did the DMK and the Congress not condemn what Thirumavalavan in the alliance had said? Thirumavalavan should apologize for making anti-women remarks.
How can those who do not convey Dravidian principles to those in their own home bring them to the people? Thus she said.
