Former Madhya Pradesh minister and senior Congress leader Sajjan Singh Verma has landed in controversy after his statement on women’s legal age of marriage. The National Commission For Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) has issued notice to the Congress MLA and sought “explanation” within two days on his statement.

Earlier, talking to the media on Wednesday, the ex-minister had said, “At the age of 15, a girl is ready for marriage, I don’t know on what basis the chief minister wants to increase the marriage age.”

In a notice to Verma, the child rights body asked him to “provide an explanation within 2 days giving reasons and justifying his intention for making such discriminatory statement against minor girls and law.”

The BJP leaders have also slammed the Congress leader for his ‘dirty mentality’.
