New Delhi: National Commission of Woman (NCW) Thursday condemned IAS Harjot Kaur Bamhrah for her ‘condom’ remarks to a girl who asked for free sanitary pads from government.

Taking to the Twitter, the commission informed that it has sought a reply from Kaur within a week. The post read, “NCW India has taken cognisance of the shameful remarks. Chairperson Rekha Sharma has written to Ms Harjot Kaur Bhamra, IAS seeking a written explanation for her inappropriate statement.”

As reported earlier, during an event called ‘Sashakt Beti, Samriddh Bihar’, Bihar Women Development Corporation (WDC) Managing Director slammed a girl as she asked why government cannot provide sanitary pads worth Rs 20-30 for free.

“Is there an end to this demand? You can also give jeans pants tomorrow. The day after tomorrow can also give beautiful shoes. In the end, condoms will also have to be given for free,” said MD Harjot Kaur Bamhrah, IAS.

 In her reply, Kaur asked the girl why she cannot buy pads herself as she want government to distribute things for free.

As the argument heated up between the two, the girl pointed out that there are several such policies of the government and it’s their right to put forth their demands.
