Complaint against Telangana MP for remark on women

Jan 29 2013, 2:24am CST | by

Hyderabad, Jan 29 (IANS) A police complaint has been lodged in Visakhapatnam against a Congress MP from Telangana for allegedly making a remark which insulted Andhra women.

Hyderabad, Jan 29 — A police complaint has been lodged in Visakhapatnam against a Congress MP from Telangana for allegedly making a remark which insulted Andhra women.

Samaikhya Andhra Joint Action Committee, which is opposing a possible division of Andhra Pradesh, Tuesday lodged a complaint at police stations in three towns in the coastal city against MP Ponnam Prabhakar.

Prabhakar from Karimnagar had compared his counterpart from Andhra region Vundavalli Arun Kumar to a Peddapuram prostitute.

Peddapuram is a town in East Godavari district in coastal Andhra.

Arun Kumar is an MP from Rajahmundry constituency in the same district.

A woman leader of the JAC demanded that Prabhakar publicly apologise to Andhra women for making the comment.

She said the politician had stooped to the level of hurting the sentiments of women.

Prabhakar had made the comment while reacting sharply to Arun Kumar criticizing Telangana leaders during a speech at a recent meeting at Rajahmundry.
