Press Release

Aruna Roy President and Annie Raja, General Secretary, of the National Federation of Indian Women (NFIW) has written to PM Modi requesting to take action against BJP Kerala state President K.Surendran for making insulting comments against CPIM women, at Thrissur, Kerala. Enclosing the letter

NATIONAL FEDERATION OF INDIAN WOMEN (NFIW) 1002- Ansal Bhawan, 16-K.G. Marg, New Delhi-1


Shri.  NARENDRA MODI Hon’ble Prime Minister Union of India

Respected Prime Minister,


We, the National Federation of Indian Women (NFIW) are writing this to bring to your notice a serious issue of insulting women by the Kerala State President of BJP K. Surendran.

On Sunday 26 th  March 2023, a convention was held in Thrissur, Kerala, with the purpose of constituting a Reception Committee for the STHREE SHAKTI SAMMELAN as part of G20 SUMMIT.  Mr. Surendran inaugurated this convention

While addressing the gathering, Mr. Surendran said “women leaders of the Communist Party have become fat by looting money" and “after becoming fat like Poothana, they are insulting the women of Kerala."

NFIW views these comments which are sexually coloured, aimed at body shaming and insulting the modesty of women,  as an attack not only on those who belong to any particular political party, but the entire  country. We deplore Mr Surendran's anti-women comments.

We have no doubt that Mr Surendran's words will  tarnish the image and prestige of our country which is going to host the G20 Summit in a few months from now. You being the Hon'ble Prime Minister of India and the current chair of the G-20, we request you to urgently initiate appropriate action against Mr. Surendran.

Yours Sincerely

Aruna Roy                                            Annie Raja
