BJP MLA Ram Kadam who had courted controversy for his statement on “kidnapping girls” apologised before the State Women Commission (SWC) on Monday. The Commission had earlier issued a notice and sought an explanation within eight days.
Kadam had allegedly said that if any boy wanted to marry a girl, he would help them to flee the girl. The remark evoked sharp reaction across state.
Deposing before the SWC, Kadam said, “I would like to reassure that I will never make any statement or act in any manner that would hurt the feelings of women. I would like to apologise to all women,” he added.
