Akhilesh Yadav: Take action on the rapes happening in your state — don’t pass the blame!
“Tell the people who are worried about rapes in UP and are raising questions on the same, to stay in Delhi”
– Mulayam Singh Yadav, senior leader, Samajwadi Party
“Rapes happen across the country but only Uttar Pradesh is being defamed”
– Chaudhry Sahib Singh, Samajwadi Party leader
“When such incidents [rapes] occur it is publicised a lot…Such incidents don’t occur only in UP and if I give you statistics across the country you will again ask me questions.”
– Akhilesh Yadav, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister
These are the responses from the top leaders from the Akhilesh Yadav government after the horrific rape of two Dalit girls in Uttar Pradesh! They shouldn’t get away with this!
Please join me in making the leaders of the Uttar Pradesh government take action against the increasing sexual assault in their state, instead of making such heartless comments.
Can you please sign this petition and share it with your friends?
The Baudan gangrape case and the subsequent reports of more rapes and crimes against women in UP has raised the question women’s safety in the state. Yet they’re making statements defending their leadership? We cannot let this continue.
If thousands of citizens like us speak out we will be able to keep the issue in the limelight and push the Akhilesh Yadav government to take responsibility for sexual assault in their state.
Sign now to demand that the UP government create and release a plan on how they will successfully address sexual assault in the next 60 days.
