NEW DELHI: Union minister Smriti Irani took a jibe at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Monday for alleging that the BJP government disrespected Indian women by arguing in the Supreme Court that they did not deserve command posts as they were inferior to men.
Soon after the Supreme Court's decision that women officers should get permanent commission in the armed forces, Gandhi had tweeted, "The Govt disrespected every Indian woman, by arguing in the SC that women Army officers didn't deserve command posts or permanent service because they were inferior to men. I congratulate India's women for standing up & proving the BJP Govt wrong."
