On Tuesday, Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra hit out at Yogi Adityanath’s government in Uttar Pradesh over the Hathras gangrape incident, alleging that there is “no semblance of security” for women in the State. She said incidents of rape one after another, in Hathras, Shahjahanpur and Gorakhpur have shaken the State.
“A Dalit girl who was victim of demoniac behaviour in Hathras has passed away at Safdarjung Hospital. For two weeks she kept struggling between life and death in hospitals,” Priyanka Gandhi said in a tweet in Hindi. “Law and order in UP has deteriorated to a great extent. There is no semblance of safety for women. The criminals are committing crimes in the open,” Priyanka Gandhi added. The killers of this girl should be punished severely, she demanded.
…यूपी में कानून व्यवस्था हद से ज्यादा बिगड़ चुकी है। महिलाओं की सुरक्षा का नाम-ओ-निशान नहीं है।अपराधी खुले आम अपराध कर रहे हैं।
इस बच्ची के क़ातिलों को कड़ी से कड़ी सजा मिलनी चाहिए। @myogiadityanath उप्र की महिलाओं की सुरक्षा के प्रति आप जवाबदेह हैं। 2/2
