TIL Desk/National/New Delhi/ Drawing a comparison between mythological character Bhishma Pitahmah and Samajwadi Party (SP) founder Mulayam Singh Yadav, Union Minister and BJP leader Sushma Swaraj on Monday sought Mulayam’s response on the ‘Khaki underwear’ comment made by his party leader Azam Khan against film actor and Rampur BJP candidate Jaya Prada.
Referring to Draupadi’s cheer-haran (disrobing) – a scene from epic Mahabharata in which Pandavas lost a bet to their usurping cousins – Swaraj appealed to Mulayam to not remain silent on the matter.
“Mulayam Bhai – You are the father figure of Samajwadi Party. In front of you, Draupadi is being disrobed in Rampur. Do not make the mistake of being silent like Bhishma@yadavakhilesh Smt. Jaya Bhaduri, Mrs.Dimple Yadav,” she tweeted in Hindi.
Khan, while addressing a poll campaign rally in his parliamentary constituency Rampur on Sunday, had said, “I brought her (Jaya Prada) to Rampur. You are a witness that I did not allow anyone to touch her body. It took you 17 years to identify her real face but I got to know in 17 days that she wears khaki underwear.”
