LUCKNOW — Samajwadi Party Chief and former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, Akhilesh Yadav on Wednesday mounted a blistering attack on the Yogi Adityanath government over the rise of crime against women.
Akhilesh Yadav said that while the government was seemingly busy publicising in programmes like ‘Mission Shakti’ and ‘Pink Booth’, women were being forced to commit suicide amid the rising crime-rate against them in the state.
In a tweet, Akhilesh said, “Disappointed with the increasing cases of rape, sexual harassment and molestation against women. Sisters and daughters are being forced to commit suicide in the BJP government and the government is busy in showy programs like ‘Mission Shakti’ and ‘Pink Booth’. Government should understand the pain of these families.”
महिलाओं के ख़िलाफ़ जिस प्रकार बलात्कार, यौन उत्पीड़न व छेड़खानी के मामले बेतहाशा बढ़ रहे हैं उससे निराश होकर भाजपा सरकार में बहन-बेटियाँ आत्महत्या करने पर मजबूर हो रही हैं और सरकार ‘मिशन शक्ति’ व ‘पिंक बूथ’ जैसे दिखावटी कार्यक्रमों में व्यस्त है.
सरकार परिवारवालों का दर्द समझे.

Akhilesh Yadav further said that the BJP created propaganda about its schemes, but never bothered to ensure that they reached the grassroots levels.
“If the energy spent on publicity is diverted towards implementation, things would improve,” he said. — IANS
