New Delhi , Jan 10 : Congress president Rahul Gandhi, had at a rally in Rajasthan on Wednesday, mocked that PM Modi had a 'mahila (woman) 'defend him during the Rafale debate in the parliament following which he faced a lot of criticism.

The Congress chief is now facing criticism for his sexist comment targeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman over the Rafale deal with twiteratti going all out in their condemnation of Rahul Gandhi.

The National Commission for Women too has issued a notice to Gandhi.

Calling his remarks "pathetic, sexist and misogynistic", the NCW chairperson Rekha Sharma has also sought Gandhi's apology in the matter.

Here's what twitteratti said:

Smriti Irani too tweeted on Rahul with the hashtag #MisogynistRahul, while her colleague Union Minister Sushma Swaraj took to twitter to write that Gandhi's comments mark a "new low" in Indian politics.

However, actor-director Prakash Raj has now come out in defence of the Congres chief saying that Rahul Gandhi's statement should be looked from a different angle also.
