Maneka Gandhi says hostel curfew to save girls from hormonal outbursts. What the hell logic behind such statement? Someone tell me its dream- Anshul Saxena (@AskAnshul) March 6, 2017
An audience member had asked Ms Gandhi for her views on the hostel curfews. She began by saying she didn't have a view point on the topic. "Minsters are expected to produce views within two seconds and our views are usually not thought out," she said.
When asked why the lakshman rekhas are drawn only for women, the minister said the same deadlines should apply for boys as well. "Why should the boys be allowed to wander about in the campus after 6'o-clock in the evening? Let them also stay in and let them do their work," she said.
It was, however, the statement on 'hormonal outbursts' that really set off Twitter. What do you think of Ms Gandhi's comment? Tell us using the comments section below.
