Tamil Nadu health minister C Vijaya Bhaskar on Friday expressed regret over his alleged sexist remark about a woman journalist.
The minister, who was coming out of the AIADMK MLAs meeting in Chennai on Thursday evening, told a television journalist – “Your specs looks beautiful. You are looking beautiful.”
Even though the minister thought he was cleverly diverting the attention of the media from getting any political response from him, his remark landed him in trouble, with journalists and others up in arms against him over his ‘sexist’ remark.
As the debate picked up on Friday after television channels started airing a footage of the minister making the remarks, Vijaya Bhaskar expressed regret. “I treat all journalists as my brothers and sisters. That remark was made in order to divert the topic away from political questions,” he said.
