The former Punjab cabinet minister said that such statements will not benefit a party like BJP, which has lakhs of female workers and will adversely affect the image of the country.

"I request you to rein in BJP leaders with such medieval mindset and restrain them from making such statements," she wrote in the letter. Gaur had said "Leave it, women can worship at home", when his response was sought on the ongoing debate on whether women should be allowed into the temple in Shani Shingnapur.
