Uttar Pradesh’s Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, amidst rows of rapes, political angles and questions about the safety of women in his ruling state, has put forward his statement.
Yogi Adityanath wrote “उत्तर प्रदेश में माताओं-बहनों के सम्मान-स्वाभिमान को क्षति पहुंचाने का विचार मात्र रखने वालों का समूल नाश सुनिश्चित है। इन्हें ऐसा दंड मिलेगा जो भविष्य में उदाहरण प्रस्तुत करेगा। आपकी UP Government प्रत्येक माता-बहन की सुरक्षा व विकास हेतु संकल्पबद्ध है। यह हमारा संकल्प है-वचन है”
He pledges for strict action against the rapists or criminals, who are a part of the harm caused to the mothers and daughters of UP, and at the same time promises that the government shall not lead to the losing of respect of any woman of the state.
With visuals surfacing of the District Magistrate “threatening” the victim’s family to change statement, Victim’s kin alleging they were pressurised by the administration, there are more questions unanswered.
