BJP leader sorry for ‘dehati women’ remark

The BJP leader,however,said he would not apologise to the CM

Former BJP minister Giriraj Singh on Monday apologised for his remark that Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar was “quarrelling with Narendra Modi like envious dehati (village) women”. Singh apologised after a group of women protested outside his Patna residence. The BJP leader,however,said he would not apologise to the CM as the he should not have resorted to the “language of litters”. Singh had made the “derogatory reference to women” as he reacted to Nitish’s statement where he had said that people of Bihar will “sweep away the litters from outside before Diwali” — an indirect dig at Narendra Modi’s second visit to Bihar in a week to meet the families of those who died in blasts at his Patna rally.
