"The NCW and the Election Commission are insulting me," he said at an election meeting in Bijnore on Monday.

Yadav made the comment in the light of NCW sending him a notice over his remarks on rape during an election rally in Moradabad and writing a letter to the Election Commission to take cognizance of the matter.

Questioning the death sentence to three men who were recently convicted for gang-rape cases in Mumbai, Yadav had last week said, "Should rape accused be punished with hanging? Boys are boys, mistakes happen sometimes.”

The Samajwadi Party supremo said that he had championed the cause of women and fought maximum for them.

He further said if his party came to power, it would raise the retirement age of government employees to 65 and also increase the income tax ceiling.
