In a shocking remark, DMK’s propaganda secretary Dindigul Leoni said foreign cow’s milk was making women fat like a balloon.
He said “ By drinking that milk, all our women have become fat like a balloon. Earlier, a woman’s figure looked like the number 8. They could carry children on their hips. But now, if they hold a child, it slips away because they have become like a barrel.”
Leoni was campaigning for the party’s Thondamuthur candidate Karthikeya Sivasenapathy.
There was outrage over Leoni’s comment but the party has maintained a stoic silence.
The voting for the 234 seats of the Tamil Nadu Assembly is scheduled for April 6. The counting of votes will start on May 2.
