Nagaland |‘Sexist’ remark was made in humour:  Zeliang apologises for Assembly comments

KOHIMA, March 2, 2019: Former chief minister and leader of opposition, TR Zeliang has, on Friday, apologised for the sexist remark he made during the recently concluded Nagaland Legislative Assembly session.

Zeliang stated that he is sorry if his comment had hurt the sentiments of the people, "particularly the women community."

"My statement that 'some men can please two girls, but no man can serve two masters' was never intended to hurt the sentiments of any section of the society, particularly the women community."

The statement further reads, "The phrase was uttered in good vein because humorous description of events or topics under discussion is a normal practice which is known to all members of the Legislative Assembly. However, if it has hurt the feelings of any section of the society, I apologise and retract my statement."
