Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar is under attack from all sides over his strange statement on women in the Assembly. Now the National Commission for Women has also strongly condemned Nitish Kumar’s statement. The Commission expressed strong objection to the statement made by Nitish Kumar in the Assembly regarding women’s fertility, education and linking them with the population of this country.
The National Commission for Women described Nitish Kumar’s statement as insensitive and asked the Chief Minister to apologize. Delhi Women Commission Chairperson Swati Maliwal wrote in a post on Twitter that I strongly condemn the derogatory language used by Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar while addressing the Assembly. He should apologize immediately!

In fact, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, while emphasizing the importance of education among women to control the population, placed a statement in the state assembly on how an educated woman can stop her husband from having an affair.
Delhi Women Commission posted on social media platform X (formerly Twitter) saying that such statements are extremely insensitive towards women and their rights of choice. The Chief Minister of Bihar should apologize to women across the country for these extremely objectionable comments.
She said that as the Chairperson of the Women’s Commission, on behalf of every woman in this country, I demand an immediate and unequivocal apology from Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar. His indecent remarks in the Assembly are an insult to the dignity and respect that every woman deserves. Is.
