Nirbhaya's mother (Asha Devi) has strongly objected to the statement made by Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot regarding the stringent law made after the Nirbhaya gang rape case. He said that Congress was the government at that time. The rhetoric being made by the Congress leader in this regard is unfortunate. Gehlot had recently said that after the Nirbhaya case, the convicts of rape are being given capital punishment.
Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot said on Sunday morning that after the Nirbhaya case, the law of hanging for the culprits has come, due to which there has been an increase in the incidents of murder after rape. He said that this dangerous trend seen in the country is a matter of concern. Let us tell you that Rajasthan remains at number one in the country in the incidents of rape. Most rape cases are coming here.
Nirbhaya's mother Asha Devi further said that before the provision came, girls were killed. This shows his (CM Gehlot) mentality of supporting the criminals while he lacks sympathy towards the victims. Law is not bad, people have mentality, they should apologize and resign.
Union Jal Shakti Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat said that the Chief Minister's statement is unfortunate. Shekhawat said that Ashok Gehlot's statement is unfortunate. In the last three years, Rajasthan has remained the center of atrocities on innocent girls. Nothing can be more unfortunate than that the issue is being escalated by making controversial statements to hide its failures.
Deputy Leader of Opposition in the Rajasthan Legislative Assembly Rajendra Rathod said that the statement made by Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot about the rise in incidents of murder after rape with the provision of capital punishment is unfortunate and shameful. He said that the Chief Minister, who is also the head of the Home Department, One cannot escape the failure of his government in the increasing rape cases in the state by making absurd statements. Responding to the Chief Minister's statement, Rathod said that the NCRB data and police reports show that the state ranks first in the country in rape cases.
