Yadav had commented that the honour of vote was greater than the honour of daughters.

Congress and RJD leaders too had expressed their resentment over the derogatory remarks of  Yadav against women
here on January 24. The NDA workers burnt effigies of Yadav and demanded an aplogy from  him. In New Delhi, protests against  Yadav reached the streets where his effigies were burnt by women activists and workers of NDA.

Speaking at the JD(U) sponsored programme on birth anniversary of Socialist leader Karpoori Thakur here on January 24, Sharad nYadav had said, “Honour of vote was more important than the honour of a daughter. If the honour 0of a daughter is compromised, the honour of the village or community is affected, but if the honour of vote is compromised, it impacts the entire nation. That is the reason honour of vote is more important than the honour of the daughter.”
Deputy chief minister Tejeshwai Yadav, son of RJD president Lalu Prasad, said, “This is Sharad Yadav’s personal view.” Two women ministers-Anita  Devi and Manju Verma disagreed with Sharad’s remarks and
said honour of women is supreme in the society.
Bihar Pradesh Congress Committee president and education minister Ashok Kumar Chaudhury said, “We do not take note of Sharad Yadav’s comments.”
At the same function, Sharad had commented, ” Popularity of Congress is at lowest ebb worse than following the emergency.”
