NCW Seeks FIR Against TMC MP Mahua Moitra for ‘Derogatory Remarks’

Mahua Moitra

The National Commission for Women (NCW) has taken suo motu cognizance of the derogatory remark made by TMC MP Mahua Moitra against its chairperson Rekha Sharma and has sought an FIR against her.

This action follows a comment by the TMC, posted on X, regarding a video showing the NCW chairperson’s arrival at the scene of a recent stampede in Uttar Pradesh’s Hathras. The comment read, “She is too busy holding up her boss’s pajamas.”

“The crude remarks are outrageous and a violation of a woman’s right to dignity. The Commission observed that this remark attracts Section 79 of the Bharatiya Nyay Sanhita, 2023,” the NCW stated in a post on X.

The NCW has strongly condemned the defamatory remarks and called for stringent action against the TMC MP.

“An FIR should be lodged against Mahua Moitra, and a comprehensive action report should be submitted to the Commission within 3 days,” it added.
