Joice George, a former MP from Idukki in Kerala, has alleged that the Congress leaders conduct programs only in women’s colleges and train girls to stand and bend there. He warns the girls that Rahul is a bachelor, so girls should avoid going near him. George was campaigning there for state minister MM Mani. However, the Congress has been infuriated by her controversial remarks and her statement is being described as having an anti-women mindset. The Congress is also preparing to protest against the demand for his arrest.
Former Idukki MP Joice George said about Congress leader and Wayanad MP Rahul Gandhi, “Rahul Gandhi’s programs are held only in women’s colleges. They go there and teach the girls how to stand and how to bend. My dear children don’t go near them and don’t do such work ,they are bachelors.”
George is Idukki’s LDF-backed former Independent MP. Significantly, the 50-year-old leader is also a lawyer by profession. But, the most interesting thing is that earlier he was also a Congress worker and came to the discussion during the 2011 assembly elections due to translating Rahul Gandhi’s speech in Kattappana of the same district. Another interesting thing is that the LDF candidate MM Mani, who had come to campaign for him, is contesting against Congress candidate and former MLA EM Egusti, who is his own close relative.
