Name products after women, see how demand soars: Maha. Minister
Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], Nov 5 (ANI): Maharashtra Minister Girish Mahajan has scored himself trouble over a derogatory remark against women, saying if products and alcohol brands are named after fairer sex, one could see the demands soaring high.
"If you want alcohol or any product's demand to rise, name it after a woman and see how the demand soars," Mahajan said in a speech, while attending an event by a sugar factory, which also produces liquor under the brand name 'Maharaja'.
The minister has drawn flak from all quarters for his derogatory remarks.
"The way the minister had made the remark makes me believe that he had consumed four bottles of maharaja (liquor) in the night," Nationalist Congress Party leader Nawab Malik told ANI.
He added that women should come out on streets to fight this mindset.
"I think the minister is a habitual drinker and we appeal all the women in Maharashtra to come out and fight this kind of a mindset," Malik said.(ANI)
