NEW DELHI: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Monday claimed the BJP government disrespected Indian women by arguing in Supreme Court that women's Army officers did not deserve command posts or permanent service because they were inferior to men.
He also lauded the women for standing up and proving the government wrong.
