Governance Now - - LAW -

The bill in­tro­duces re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion as vic­tims’ right. it is a very pos­i­tive step, and i ap­pre­ci­ate it. So far nei­ther re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion nor pre­ven- tion or pro­tec­tion has been in­tro­duced by any gov­ern­ment. This bill gives teeth for pro­tec­tion and pre­ven­tion leg­is­la­ture.

But i do not agree with the idea of com­mu­nity-based shel­ter homes. let the shel­ter homes be the re­spon­si­bil­ity of the cen­tre or state gov­ern­ments, not some ngo. com­mu­nity-based shel­ter homes run with po­lit­i­cal con­nec­tions and lead to in­ci­dents like those in muzaf­farpur and deo­ria.”
