MODI’S HOLLOW SLOGANS
Prime Minister Narendra Modi broke his silence on the recent rapes, only when the Allahabad high court gave directions to the UP government to arrest Kuldeep Sengar, the accused BJP MLA in the case in Uttar Pradesh. In Kathua, two BJP ministers had little compunction in speaking out for those accused of raping an eight-year-old girl. The ‘Beti Bachao Beti Padhao’ campaign and Modi’s slogans on “women” empowerment get exposed as mere rhetoric when those in power protect the perpetrators of such horrific crimes, and he remains silent.
