Women shouldn't have mobile phones: BSP MP

Monday October 22, 2012 05:11:34 PM, IANS

Lucknow: The BSP found itself red faced Monday after one of its MPs said women should not be given mobile phone.

The MP from Muzaffarnagar, Raj Pal Singh, told a gathering in his village that women should be barred from using mobile phones.

"Hamari maa behnon ke paas to mobile na tha, kya mar gayin wo sab?" (Our mothers and sisters never had them, did they die without this gadget?)" he said amid nods of approval from the villagers.

Raj Pal Singh said most problems faced by women today were due to posession of mobiles.

He even suggested that elders in all families should take back the mobile phones given to girls and women in their homes.

Social activists are up in arms against the MP.

One of them, Arti Mishra, told IANS that the statement was not only "bad in taste" but discriminatory.

 

"The president of the MP's party is a woman, we are waiting for the reaction of Maywati now," she added.
