    the credibility and the dignity of women as a whole. Mr. Madhusudan Mistri has made a

    statement as follows:

    good news.

    This statement has been made in pursuance of the question asked by a media person to

    him that as per the statement of Mrs. Sushma Swaraj, there are all chances of good news

    what is his response to the said statement. While responding to the same he has made

    elderly person. Not only that the said statement is derogatory and against the dignity of the

    women fraternity as a whole. The election commission specifically provides that no person
