“Go Home And Cook”: Maharashtra BJP Leader’s Sexist Jab At MP Supriya Sule

Maharashtra BJP chief Chandrakant Patil, targeting Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Supriya Sule on Wednesday, made a hugely controversial comment that has triggered outrage. “If you don’t understand politics, go home and cook,” he told the MP during a protest.

The sexist comment was made as the two parties sparred over reservations for OBC (Other Backward Class) in Maharashtra.

The BJP leader was apparently reacting to Supriya Sule comparing Maharashtra’s fight for OBC quota with that of Madhya Pradesh and questioning how the BJP-ruled state got the green signal from the Supreme Court for quota in local elections.

Ms Sule, whose party shares power with the Shiv Sena and Congress in Maharashtra, said she had contacted Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan during his Delhi visit, but he did not reveal what he did to get the reprieve.

“The Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh came to Delhi and met ‘someone’… I don’t know what suddenly happened over the next two days and they got a go-ahead for OBC reservations,” Ms Sule told a party meeting in Marathi.

Supriya Sule Career

Sule was elected to the Rajya Sabha in the September 2006 intake from Maharashtra and is a trustee of the Nehru Centre in Mumbai.

She led the state level campaign against female foeticide. The campaign included padayatras, college events, competitions etc.

In 2012, under the leadership of Sule, the wing named Rashtravadi Yuvati Congress was formed to give platform to young girls in politics.

For past several months, several rallies have been organised all over Maharashtra which focused on female fetus abortion, dowry system and women empowerment in general.

In April 2010, Sule denied allegations of financial links between her family and the Indian Premier League (IPL), when reports on IPL irregularities in its ownership and functioning surfaced and led India’s Minister of State for External Affairs to resign.

However, there were reports that her husband owned (via a power of attorney from his father) 10% of a firm that had exclusive multi-year broadcasting rights for IPL matches.

In June 2010, The Economic Times, India’s largest business newspaper, reported that Sharad Pawar and Supriya Sule owned 16.22 percent of a firm that had bid for the Pune franchise of IPL.

She had previously stated, “I say with full conviction that my husband or my family has nothing to do with these issues (the IPL bids) … We always stay miles away from it. Yes, we are avid cricket watchers, my husband, my kids, my family, all, and that’s where the buck stops.” When challenged on this, she said she was just a minority shareholder and cannot be responsible for the firm’s actions.
