Satish Chandra Mishra, who is a Bahujan Samaj Party MP, on Tuesday urged the government to ban Soap Operas, giving the reason that TV serials show women in miserable light.

Accroding to media reports, the BSP member, during a debate on the working of women and child development ministry in the upper house, said that TV serials are causing social damage. 

Substantiating the argument, Satish Chandra Mishra cited 'Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi' as an example to prove that women are shown in poor light. "Interestingly, the woman in the serial fought against all the exploitation, and is a minister now... something should be done to ban these serials", he is quoted to have said. 

However, Jaya Bachchan, veteran actor and Rajya Sabha member allegedly objected to it and said, "What you are saying is not true. These stories are written based on real life experiences. It is a mirror to the society."

Responding to the statement, Satish Mishra said that he respected Jaya Bachchan as she has done so many movies, but no one can raise a finger on her dressing or conduct in any movie.

After a while, the minister subtly criticised Aamir Khan for his recent poster of his upcoming film 'PK'. He called it 'obscene' and called it an offense without mentioning his name. 

The minister also objected to the poster of Aamir Khan's new film "PK", saying it is "obscene" as the poster shows actor-producer Aamir Khan without clothes.
