The sexist comment was made as the two parties sparred over reservations for OBC (Other Backward Class) in Maharashtra.

New Delhi: Maharashtra BJP chief Chandrakant Patil, targeting Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Supriya Sule on Wednesday, made a hugely controversial comment that has triggered outrage. "If you don't understand politics, go home and cook," he told the MP during a protest.

The sexist comment was made as the two parties sparred over reservations for OBC (Other Backward Class) in Maharashtra.

The BJP leader was apparently reacting to Supriya Sule comparing Maharashtra's fight for OBC quota with that of Madhya Pradesh and questioning how the BJP-ruled state got the green signal from the Supreme Court for quota in local elections. Ms Sule, whose party shares power with the Shiv Sena and Congress in Maharashtra, said she had contacted Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan during his Delhi visit, but he did not reveal what he did to get the reprieve.
