Maneka Gandhi apologises on Twitter for calling transgenders ‘the other ones’

In a separate incident, The Hindu reported that the National Network for Sex Workers (NNSW) hit out at Maneka Gandhi for ‘belittling’ them during the discussion on anti-human trafficking bill.

The NNSW stated that the Union Minister’s unpleasant remarks reinforced the stigma faced by sex workers.

The organisation referred to Gandhi’s remark on Thursday, when she said “I am going to be wicked….During the consultation on the Bill, we received comments from two groups – one representing the victims and the other representing sex workers. Dr Tharoor represents the second group.”
