Ram Kadam Row: Two petitions filed against BJP MLA in Bombay High Court

The petitions filed in Bombay High Court demand strong action to be taken against BJP MLA Ram Kadam who made derogatory remarks against women during his Dahi Handi speech in Mumbai


Although Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Ram Kadam has apologised for misogynistic remarks that he made during Dahi Handi celebration in Ghatkopar, it seems like some people are not convinced. Seeking action against Kadam, two petitions have been filed in Bombay High Court until now.

Pune Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) woman President Rupali Chakankar and Bhim Army worker Neha Shinde, both have filed a petition against Ram Kadam in Bombay High Court. 

I will help you hundred per cent. Bring your parents first and if they like the girl, we will arrange her for you,” said Ram Kadam.

Kadam’s remarks led to a huge uproar and invited a lot of criticism from the opposition parties. However, while the issue was intensified, BJP never made any official statement over the same.

Earlier, women activists from opposition parties protested outside the BJP MLA’s residence and outside Ghatkopar Police station demanding the police to arrest him for his lewd remarks. Under pressure, the police registered a Non-Cognizable Offence against Kadam.
