Financial Chronicle - - FUNDAMENTALS, POLITICS -

LON­DON: In­dian stu­dents and alumni based in the UK have de­liv­ered a let­ter for Prime Min­is­ter Modi at the In­dian High Com­mis­sion in Lon­don ask­ing him to take “ex­tra­or­di­nary mea­sures” to en­sure jus­tice in rape cases re­ported from dif­fer­ent states in In­dia.

The Na­tional In­dian Stu­dents and Alumni Union (NISAU) UK, to­gether with 19 In­dia-re­lated so­ci­eties at lead­ing UK uni­ver­si­ties, sub­mit­ted the let­ter dated April 14 ahead of Modi’s four-day visit to the UK on Tues­day. “Hon Prime Min­is­ter, ex­tra­or­di­nary times de­mand ex­tra­or­di­nary mea­sures. You have not shied away from tak­ing dif­fi­cult de­ci­sions in the past, such as with de­mon­eti­sa­tion. Please take sim­i­lar ex­tra­or­di­nary steps to prove that In­dia’s daugh­ters mat­ter. We de­mand that you set a true ex­am­ple and prove that the cur­rent In­dian gov­ern­ment does care about the well­be­ing and dig­nity of its chil­dren, women, and cit­i­zens at large,” said the let­ter.
