Kanpur: Several women groups and BJP activists on Wednesday burnt effigies of Union minister Shriprakash Jaiswal over his controversial remark that wives lose charm with the passage of time.

Enraged women blackened Jaisawal's posters and raised slogans against him.

BJP demanded resignation of the Jaiswal while protesting at Parade square.

Meanwhile, protesters tried to block the road at Bada square area but police prevented them.
