Video of Congress leader BS Hooda riding on tractor being pulled by women MLAs has brought shock to people. Union Minister for Women And Child Development Smriti Irani also condemned the incident. Smriti Irani said, "It is an absolutely shocking sight. A Congress leader sits calmly on a tractor which he is making female Congress workers pull physically. I understand he wants to make a political statement, protest but should that be done at the cost of women?" "A congress leader sits calmly on a tractor which he is making female congress workers pull physically. As female president of congress, silence of Sonia Gandhi on this is also speaking volumes how women in the party are reduced to the task that even men refuse to do," she added.
