While appreciating the success of 'Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao', Khattar said, "Some people are now saying that brides can be brought from Kashmir as well".
After outrage, he claimed his words were distorted, and Babita also defended him.
CM didn't demean women, claimed Babita
हरियाणा के मुख्यमंत्री मनोहर लाल खट्टर जी ने ऐसा कोई बयान नहीं दिया है जिससे हमारी बहन बेटियों के बारे में गलत बोला गया हो मेरी मीडिया से प्रार्थना है कि उनके बयान को गलत तरीके से जनता के सामने पेश ना करें @mlkhattarhttps://t.co/9nsSYPGRJd
Separately, Mahavir congratulated Centre for scrapping Article 370
Meanwhile, Mahavir hailed the Centre's decision to scrap Article 370 of the Constitution.
"BJP government did a great work by scrapping Article 370 of the Constitution and bifurcating Jammu and Kashmir into two union territories," Mahavir said recently.
He also heaped praises on Khattar-led government "for providing the state with a transparent government and recruiting youth in a fair manner".
Earlier, Babita sued state government for allegedly withholding her promotion
Babita and her father might be showering praises on Khattar, but earlier the former had filed a case against the state government.
The 29-year-old wrestler, who was a sub-inspector in Haryana police, alleged the state government held her promotion to the post of deputy superintendent of police, despite her remarkable performance in sports.
She lost the case and subsequently resigned.
