Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi’s barb aimed at BJP at recent AICC meet has hurt the sentiments of bald people here who feel the remarks smacked of lampooning the natural phenomenon.
A number of bald men in Amalner town of Jalgaon district in North Maharashtra took out a morcha against Rahul’s statement that “opposition can even sell a comb to a bald man”.
A memorandum was submitted to Sub-Divisional Officer Tukaram Hulwale by a delegation.
The members said Rahul’s comment though aimed at BJP has hurt their feelings and is smacked of ridicule.
“Baldness is a natural process. We protest against remarks made by Rahul”, said Shivaji Patil, a member of the delegation.
