She high­lighted a chart of var­i­ous in­ci­dents of crimes against women in Ut­tar Pradesh from Oc­to­ber 9 to

15 and al­leged that the BJP is giv­ing pro­tec­tion to the crim­i­nals and this has made women un­safe in the state.

“In the last one week, 13 hor­rific in­ci­dents of crime against women have oc­curred in UP. As per re­ports, vic­tims have been killed or the vic­tims com­mit­ted sui­cide in four such in­ci­dents,” she said in a tweet in Hindi.

“This poor con­di­tion of women safety is dis­turb­ing. The chief min­is­ter has no time to con­vene a ‘spe­cial ses­sion’ but his photo ses­sion is on,” she also said while tak­ing a swipe at the Chief Min­is­ter.

She has ear­lier at­tacked the gov­ern­ment on the law and or­der sit­u­a­tion.

The Congress gen­eral sec­re­tary, who is in-charge for Ut­tar Pradesh af­fairs of the party, has launched a ma­jor of­fen­sive on the gov­ern­ment ever since the Hathras rape and mur­der case has taken place.
