Sexist comments came from leaders after Priyanka joined politics

Earlier this month, a BJP leader Jayakaran Gupta referred to Priyanka as skirt waali bai (skirt-wearing woman).

While addressing a rally in Meerut, UP, Gupta said, "One Congress leader loudly asks if ache din have come. He can't see the ache din. Skirt waali bai has started wearing sari and visiting temples, those who hate Ganga jal are now visiting the Ganga."

Kailash Vijayavargiya, BJP's National General Secretary, also made the headlines for his sexist comments against Priyanka. He said Congress gave Priyanka a top post, owing to her 'chocolaty face'. He claimed Congress suffered from lack of leadership.
