Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - - REGION -

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.
