Congress MP Calls Assam CM’s ‘Motherhood’ Remark Baseless & Slams Him

Guwahati: Congress MP Ranjeet Ranjan suggested that he should first get himself cured in response to Himanta Biswa Sarma’s comments criticising women for achieving “motherhood.”

Talking to ANI, Ranjeet Ranjan said, “Who is he (Himanta Biswa Sarma) to decide the age for any woman to attain motherhood? I believe he should get himself treated and see in his own family if the women there would seek his permission before attaining motherhood.”

“It is a completely baseless statement, this is the decision which should be solely of a woman and no other man or person should have a say in this,” added Ranjan.

Himanta Biswa Sarma on Saturday stated that women should wait to have children until they are between the ages of 22 and 30. CM Sarma reaffirmed the state government’s stern stance against adolescent pregnancy and child marriage.

He said, “Pregnancy and child birth should happen at the right age and time. The ideal time is between the age of 22 years to 30 years.”

“In the next 5-6 months, thousands of husbands will be arrested as it is a crime to have sexual relations with a girl below 14 years of age, even if he is her legally wed husband. Those who marry younger girls below 18 years will also be brought to book,” Sarma further stated.
