JD(U) chief Sharad Yadav's sexist remark in the Parliament on the complexion of South Indian women, which created a major pandemonium in the country, took over the social media with #SharadDoesItAgain trending on Twitter since Monday.

#SharadDoesItAgain has been used in several tweets following the chauvinistic remark of the political leader.


According to One India, people from all across the country condemned the JD(U) chief's remark while the Insurance bill was debated in Rajya Sabha, addressing the women from the southern part of the country as "saanvli (dark)."

"The women of the South are dark but they are as beautiful as their bodies...We don't see it here. They know dance," Yadav was quoted as saying during the parliamentary session.

Yadav was greatly reproved by women MPs in the Parliament who demanded an apology for his his racist comment.

"I appeal to you not to make comments on skin colour of women in this manner. You are a senior member of the House and there is a very wrong message going outside," BJP leader Smriti Irani was quoted as saying.

Defending his statement, Yadav said that he held women in high respect and claimed that he had been misjudged as he had never disrespected women.
