Honour of vote more important than that of daughter's: JD(U) leader Sharad Yadav
"Honour of vote is bigger and important than honour of daughter. If daughter's honour is compromised, it only affects the village or community but if the vote's honour is compromised, it impacts the entire nation," Yadav said.
"I regret (the controversy). I respect her," he said in Rajya Sabha, after Leader of the House Arun Jaitley said a "very improper impression" had been created in the media on Yadav's remarks during a discussion in the House two days ago.
Jaitley urged Yadav to clarify his remarks and put the controversy to rest.
A major controversy had broken out when Yadav had commented on the complexion of women from a particular part of the country.
