Shah also asked Rahul Gandhi, and BSP supremo Mayawati if they endorse Khan's remarks.

"The obnoxious remarks which made against is not an insult to her alone, but an insult to crores of mothers and sisters of the country. It's an insult to the women power (matrishakti) of the country," said Shah, in two tweets.

Asking the chiefs of three other key parties in to make their stand clear on the remarks, Shah said, "I would like to ask (chief Akhilesh Yadav) and if they approve of Khan's remark."

"For insulting the 'matrishakti', the SP, BSP and must tender an apology," said Shah.

Khan had made an "underwear jibe" allegedly targeting film and his BJP contender for the Rampur Lok Sabha seat, Jaya Prada, telling people at a rally there that he came to know only "in 17 days that she wears a 'khaki' underwear".

Without naming the actor, said in his rally in Kanpur, "... you got represented (by her) for 10 years. (aapne das saal apna pratinidhitwa karwaya)".

"People of Rampur, people of and people of India, it took you 17 years to understand her reality. But, I could recognize it in 17 days that she wears a khaki underwear," Khan had said.

Rampur goes to poll on April 23 in the third phase of elections along with a total of 115 constituencies in 14 states.
