The Hon’ble Minister backtracked with the usual “my comments are misinterpreted” excuse.
This is what the Hon’ble Minister originally said:
“men cannot be trusted. A woman should not feel shy about keeping condoms with her. She is equally responsible for her health and she should be prepared for any any kind of eventuality. Women is always more vulnerable.”
This is the excuse by the Hon’ble Minister: “”Yes, it is ironic. It is a tragedy that it is interpreted like this. The people, the women I have met are women who are survivors of HIV, people who are living with HIV/AIDS. And the women themselves have said it in the audience, in front of everyone that we have got AIDS because of our husbands,”
Err, is this an issue of misinterpretation or one of foot in the mouth ?
Can we at least get someone who can communicate to be a Union Minister?
