- My email to Supriya Sule regarding Asha's Mirge's outrageous remarks on women - pl copy-paste and send a similar email to her on your name. Her email id is: firstname.lastname@example.org
This is Vinita Deshmukh, Pune's Lok Sabha candidate from Nav Bharat Democratic Party.
I wish to register my protest against the disgusting remarks on women by Asha Mirge, who shared the dais with you.
Mirge's remarks that provocative dresses of women are reasons for sexual assaults and that the lady reporter had no business to go to an isolated place after 6 pm are outrageous. Mirge has also questioned as to why Nirbhaya should have gone for a 11pm movie. Mirge is reported to have said that sexual assaults on women take place due to three reasons - a woman's clothes, her behaviour and her presence in inappropriate place
You, as a senior woman politician of Maharashtra is aware that sexual assaults occur even in the remotest of places in Maharashtra. You are aware that stalking and eve teasing is so common even in gallis of every city. Yet, you did not stop Mirge from saying what she said and instead later you said it was `grandmother's advice.'
In order to stand up for the dignity of women, I urge you to ask Mirge to tender an unconditional apology in public. I also urge you to condemn Mirge's statement in Public,
I am looking forward to your reply for upholding dignity of womanhood
