"Beti ki izzat se bhi vote ki izzat badi hai. Beti ki izzat jayegi to gaon aur muhalle ki izzat jayegi. Vote ek baar bik gaya, to desh ki izzat, aur aane wala sapna poora nhi ho skta? (If daughter's honour is compromised than it will bring shame to a village or a community but if votes are sold, it impacts our nation), added Yadav in his speech.

This is not the first time Yadav has passed sexist remarks. Earlier, he made a sexist remark directly aimed at then Human Resource Development minister Smriti Irani in Parliament during a debate on the Insurance Bill.

Meanwhile, National Commission for Women (NCW) issued notice to Yadav over his statement "Beti ki izzat se vote ki izzat badi hai" in Patna.
