"If he (Rahul Gandhi) had asked about women's role in RSS, then I would have given him an appropriate answer," she said at a Mahila Townhall in Ahmedabad.

"Par jis tarah ki abhadra bhasha ka unhone prayog kiya, main aise abhadra prashn ka uttar nahin dena chahti (But he spoke in an indecent way so I would no comment on it)," she added.

She also said that a politician of such a stature should be using that kind of language.

Swaraj's was responding to a question on Rahul Gandhi's comment on RSS in Vadodara earlier this week.

"How many women are there in the RSS.... Have you ever seen any woman in the 'shakhas' wearing shorts? I have never seen them," he had asked.

The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on Tuesday demanded Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi's apology for his remarks.

Reacting to Rahul Gandhi's women in shorts comment, the BJP has said that the Congress vice president has a perverse mind.

Slamming Rahul for the comment, Union Minister Smriti Irani had said, "The women of Gujarat and the nation will not forgive the Congress leader with perverse mentality for insulting women. Will Gujarat, and its women, be safe in the hands of Rahul Gandhi."
