Mumbai, Dec 4 (IANS): Taking cognizance of a complaint pertaining to a maharashtra Minister's slur against Nationalist Congress Party MP Supriya Sule last month, Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari has sent a complaint by women leaders to the state government for appropriate action, officials said here.

Drawing his attention to certain scurrilous remarks made by Agriculture Minister Abdul Sattar against Sule which sparked off a massive political furore, the women's group had submitted a memorandum demanding strict action against and his sacking from the cabinet.

Days after the meeting, the Governor informed Khan that he had forwarded the plea to the state government for appropriate action.

Confirming, Khan said that the delegation had informed the Governor how ministers holding responsible positions in the government were making insulting statements on women, and the delegation had protested in the matter.

"We are thankful to the Governor for taking note of this and sending it to the state government for suitable action," said Khan on Saturday.
