Mufti: Sack minister for harassing woman
Mehbooba Mufti

Jammu, February 12

Former Chief Minister and PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday demanded the immediate sacking of a Tripura minister after a video shows him groping a woman colleague on stage in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Reacting acerbically, the PDP chief, who has remained quite vocal on the issues directly related to womenfolk, described the incident as “repulsive and shocking” and demanded immediate action against the minister.

“Repulsive and shocking. If this can happen to a minister in front of the PM, imagine the harassment ordinary womenfolk must be subjected to. Hope he is sacked immediately,” Mehbooba tweeted.

A video of the Prime Minister’s Tripura rally, held on February 9, has gone viral where Tripura minister Manoj Kanti Deb is allegedly seen touching Social Welfare and Social Education Minister Santana Chakma, a young tribal leader, in an “indecent manner” by putting his hand on her waist. — TNS
