You are beautiful, Sharad Yadav tells reporter
In his attempt to parry direct answer to an innocuous question, NDA convener Sharad Yadav ended up calling a woman reporter "beautiful".
When asked to choose between Madhya Pradesh and Bihar, the states he has represented in Parliament, the JD(U) chief said "both states are beautiful, the whole country is beautiful, even you are beautiful''. The comment made in lighter vein did not offend the reporter.
When reached for comments later, a JD(U) leader quoted Yadav as saying he did not say anything inappropriate. "Usme galat kya hai... sari bachhiyan khubsurat hoti hai," Yadav said in the presence of his own daughter.
