Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], Nov 5 (ANI): A complaint was filed against Maharashtra Water Resource Minister Girish Mahajan on Sunday for his statement that products demands soar high if they are named after women.

The complaint against the minister has been filed by a social activist.

Mahajan while delivering an address during an event organised by a sugar factory, had said, "If you want alcohol or any product's demand to rise, name it after a woman and see how the demand soars."

The minister has come under fire for his statement.

Earlier, reacting to his statement, Nationalist Congress Party leader Nawab Malik had urged women to come out on streets to fight against such mindset.

"I think the minister is a habitual drinker and we appeal all the women in Maharashtra to come out and fight this kind of a mindset," Malik said. (ANI)
