Bharatiya Janata Party’s MLA Surendra Singh, who represents the Bairia constituency in Uttar Pradesh’s Ballia, on Saturday said that incidents of rape would cease if parents instill ‘sanskar’ and good values in their daughters while speaking in reference to the horrific rape and murder of a 19-year-old Dalit woman in Hathras. He said even if the government stands with a sword incidents of rape still cannot be stopped.
While interacting with media persons in Ballia’s Chandpur, the BJP lawmaker said, “I am a teacher. Even if the government stands with the sword, such incidents wouldn’t stop. Such incidents will stop when parents give sanskar to their daughters and inculcate (good) values in them.”
He further added, “The way it is the duty of the government to give protection, likewise, it is the duty of the family and parents to inculcate sanskar in their children. The parents should teach them polite behaviour. The combination of Sanskar and government can make the country beautiful. There is no other way out.”
