New Delhi: Rajasthan’s education minister has said at a public event that schools with more women teachers and staff tend to see more fights.

Indian Express has reported that minister Govind Singh Dotsara said this at a programme to mark International Girl Child Day in Jaipur, on October 11.


“As the head of my department, I have to point out that schools with more women staffers tend to see more fights for various reasons.” Dotsara said that the fights are usually on various issues like arriving late or arriving early.

He then said, “If you correct these small things, you will always find yourselves ahead of men.”

A Facebook live video feed uploaded by India Today shows the minister making the comment. Others at the dais nod or smile when he speaks.


Earlier this year, Dotsara had been accused of having a hand in the selection of his daughter-in-law’s sister and brother to the Rajasthan Administrative Services (RAS). He had denied wrongdoing and said the exams had been conducted in a transparent manner.

Recently, Karnataka health minister K. Sudhakar had said that modern Indian women want to stay single, are unwilling to give birth even after marriage and desire children by surrogacy.
