Madhya Pradesh former Chief Minister Kamal Nath's "item" remark on a woman leader drew National Commission for Women chairperson Rekha Sharma's fury labelling it disgraceful and demeaning. Sharma also demanded the party to take strict action against the former MP CM, who sparked controversy after referring to BJP leader Imarti Devi as an "item" at an election meeting in the Dabra assembly constituency in Gwalior district.
