AICC Rajasthan General Secretary Gurdas Kamat made derogatory remarks against Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani calling her a “Kaam wali bai” while campaigning for the upcoming local body polls in Pali on Wednesday.

Kamat said the Human Resouces Development Minister was a “poncha lagane waali (one who mops floors)” in the past and questioned her credentials to be in charge of the important education portfolio.  Targeting Union minister Smriti Irani’s humble past has sparked massive outrage both on and offline for degrading the dignity of labor and for being derogatory against women.

The BJP has reacted sharply to Kamat’s comments. Speaking about Kamat’s comments, Rajasthan BJP Chief Ashok Parnami said,

These sort of shallow statements against women show the Congress’ desperation. It shows that the Congress does not have any substantial issue to put before the people. It would have done them good to concentrate on people’s issues, instead of making such statements.

Kamat is now trying to clarify the statement saying,

All I had said was that before landing roles in television serials, she used to wipe tables at McDonalds. And there is nothing wrong with that. But what is the reason behind Modi appointing her the HRD minister when she is not even a graduate and a case is pending against her for possessing a fake degree.

Kamat was today issued a notice from the women’s panel for his remarks against Smirit Irani. He has been receiving serious flak on social media with people saying that managed to trash dignity of labour, poverty and women all in the space of a minute.
