The Opposition slammed the ruling BJP for its recent political ad, which mocks leaders from the INDIA bloc. They argue that the ad undermines women’s role in society. The ad features actors parodying figures like Rahul Gandhi, Lalu Prasad Yadav, Arvind Kejriwal, and Uddhav Thackeray.

The political ad depicts a woman dressed as a bride, with INDIA bloc leaders portrayed as arguing over who will marry her. This implies the Opposition’s indecision regarding its leadership.

Reacting to the ad, Congress spokesperson Supriya Shrinate criticized it, stating that marriage is a sacred institution based on mutual trust and love. She highlighted that the BJP’s advertisement portrays women solely as brides, reinforcing traditional gender roles.

In a post on X (formerly Twitter), Supriya Shrinate pointed out the distinction between selecting a groom and electing a representative in a democracy. She emphasized the importance of adhering to the principles of democracy rather than traditional marital norms.

Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Priyanka Chaturvedi criticized the latest BJP ad, describing it as a dismal portrayal of women’s roles in society. She highlighted the perpetuation of stereotypes, depicting women solely as individuals dressed up to impress a groom in an arranged marriage scenario. Chaturvedi emphasized that this reflects the BJP’s view of Indian voters, reducing them to women seeking a groom rather than seeking good governance. She asserted that women understand the distinction between their political vote and matters of the heart.

Chaturvedi expressed her disappointment with the ad, stating that it diminishes the role of women in society. She criticized the portrayal of a woman dressed up and interacting with a specific groom and his business partners, describing it as a mockery of how women are depicted in the country.
