I am not surprised at the trash talk of top leaders of the ruling party in Punjab against women members. His body language and ager shows the attitude, disdain and thinking of rightwing parties about the women even in the open broad daylight on the camera. I don't know how could they go home and face their daughters wife or sisters.

@neil: Well, this is the provincial assembly and members have thrown chairs at each other in Rajia Sabha. (upper house of Indian parliament)
