His crass remarks in the Vidhan Sabha are an affront to the dignity and respect that every woman deserves. Such derogatory and cheap language used during his speech is a dark stain on our society.

The Bihar BJP targeted Bihar CM on his remark and said "There hasn't been a leader more vulgar than Nitish Kumar in Indian politics. It appears that Nitish babu's is bitten by 'adult, B-grade films' bug. There should be a ban on his double-meaning remarks. It seems he has been influenced by the company he keeps."

His bizarre remarks also drew flak from women legislators

His bizarre remarks on population control in the state also drew flak from women legislators. BJP MLA Nikki Hembrom said the CM is insensitive. "Whatever he was saying he could have said it with dignity. He is insensitive and he does not respect women," Nikki said.

Tejashwi Yadav said that it was wrong to misinterpret the Chief Minister's remarks

Defending Nitish Kumar, Bihar Deputy CM Tejashwi Yadav said that it was wrong to misinterpret the Chief Minister's remarks as he was talking about sex education.

"Let me tell you one thing. It is wrong if someone misinterprets it. The remarks of the CM were regarding sex education. People are hesitant whenever the topic of sex education is discussed. This is now taught in schools. Science and biology are taught in schools. Children learn it. He said what should be done practically to stop the increase in population. This should not be taken in a wrong manner. It should be taken as a sex education," Yadav said.
