The Asian Age - - Nation -

Chandigarh: A BJP MLA from Haryana, Prem­lata Singh, on Satur­day blamed “frus­tra­tion” among un­em­ployed youths as the rea­son for rapes in the coun­try, trig­ger­ing an­gry re­ac­tions on so­cial me­dia. “The frus­tra­tion that has crept into the minds of our youths is one of the rea­sons be­hind such in­ci­dents ( rapes). Youths who are frus­trated, un­em­ployed and un­sure of their fu­ture com­mit such heinous acts,” the BJP MLA from Uchana Kalan said. “A wrong tra­di­tion has started in our so­ci­ety... Men de­velop bad in­ten­tions when they see a woman any­where,” she added. Prem­lata Singh, wife of Union min­is­ter Biren­der Singh, was com­ment­ing on the gang rape of a 19year- old in Haryana.
