New Delhi, April 15 :  The National Commission for Women (NCW) on Monday issued a notice to Samajwadi Party candidate Azam Khan for his “extremely offensive, unethical” remarks against his BJP rival and actor-turned-politician Jaya Prada.

Khan, who is contesting from Uttar Pradesh’s Rampur constituency, had said at a Sunday rally that he “realised in 17 days that the underwear beneath is of the khaki colour”, while hinting at Jaya Prada, a two-time MP from Rampur.

Videos in which Khan was seen making the speeches have been doing rounds on social media and have invited strong reactions.

The SP leader claimed he never named Jaya Prada. The notice was signed by NCW Under Secretary Priti Kumar.

The women rights body took strong note of the “sexist comments” and condemned such “irresponsible and disparaging comment from persons holding responsible positions”.

The NCW notice said: “…the remarks made are extremely offensive, unethical and shows disrespect towards the dignity and respect of women in general”.

The Commission has asked the politician to provide a satisfactory explanation to it. It had earlier also taken cognisance of Khan’s derogatory remarks against women.

An FIR has been lodged against Khan.
