Bengaluru: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) women’s wing has filed a complaint with the Karnataka State Women’s Commission seeking action against former minister and Congress legislator Priyank Kharge for his ‘Lancha-Mancha Sarkar’ remark.

As reported by ANI, AAP Bengaluru Women’s Wing President Kushala Swamy said that Priyank had spoken against women at an event in Kalaburagi. She alleged him of making sexist remarks and derogatory comments against job-seeking and employed women.

Meanwhile, she demanded the Karnataka Women’s Commission to take strict action against the legislator.

Earlier on Friday, August 12, Priyank in a press conference had said that the BJP government in Karnataka had become a “Lancha-Mancha Sarkara” (bribe and couch government).

He was referring to Ramesh Jarkiholi’s resignation as Water Resources Minister over his alleged involvement in a sex-for-job scandal.

Another BJP MLA K S Eshwarappa resigned as minister after a civil contractor died by suicide alleging that the former had demanded 40 percent commission for execution of public work.

“In this government, you have to shell out money to get a government job. In the past, two ministers of this government have resigned,” he had said.
