Singer Chinmayi’s statement on the recent appointment of Nirmala Sitharaman as the Defence Minister has raised eyebrows.
Chinmayi took to her Facebook page and posted, “I have always noticed one ‘homely’ photo of a woman achiever in politics. Or any achiever for that matter. Indra Nooyi to Space scientists, no one is spared such photographic evidence of them working in the house.
Almost as if to tell the world – She also cooks, cleans and does all other gender assigned roles AND THEN, in this case, makes god awesome Avakaaya PLUS she is also defence minister.
I cant remember the last time a photo of a male achiever was released with a photo of him helping his mom around the house.”
