Talking to a news channel, Smriti Irani said that it would be unfair to issue a separate statement since NCW has already spoken about the incident.

“I am in a constitutional position that oversees the National Commission for Women. NCW has issued a public statement, hence it would be unconstitutional for me to get into their constitutional area about how they want to go ahead with a particular case” – Smriti Irani, Union Minister.

Following the complaint, NCW chairperson Rekha Sharma said, “I saw a tweet from Payal Ghosh, where she is alleging that Anurag Kashyap sexually harassed her in 2015. This is a shocking thing to hear. I have tweeted to her that if she wants to complain, she should send me a detailed complaint. We will write to the police as well. We stand by her, till the investigation happens and the case reaches the court. The National Commission for Women, we want to tell Payal Ghosh, stands by her.”
