Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje on Friday reacted to Senior politician Sharad Yadav's remarks body shaming her and said she felt ''insulted''. The Rajasthan chief minister asked the Election Commission of India (ECI) to take cognisance of ''this kind of language''.

''To set an example for future it's important that EC takes cognisance of this kind of language. I actually feel insulted and I think even women are insulted,'' she added.

Yadav sparked a controversy yesterday when he said that Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje should take rest as she has gained weight.

"Give rest to Vasundhara. She looks too tired and has gained too much weight. Earlier she was slim. She is our Madhya Pradesh`s daughter (Vasundhara ko aaram do, bahut thak gayi hain, bahut moti ho gayi hain, pehle patli thi. Humare Madhya Pradesh ki beti hai)," Yadav said on Thursday while addressing a rally.

However, Yadav later clarified that his comment was meant to be a joke."It was a joke. I have known her for a long time. It was in no manner a derogatory remark. I didn't say it to hurt her. When I met her then also I told her that she is gaining weight," he said.
