Don’t scrap the Rape Crisis Centres!
Last year, the Modi government announced that they would set up 660 Rape Crisis Centres across the country, where victims of sexual violence could be counselled, treated and rehabilitated.
But today, they have effectively trashed the entire project — they’re only allowing 36 of these Centres to be set up.
The media is already calling Modi out on his decision, but without anything new to report on it media coverage will die out. By showing public outcry and public retaliation, we can add a newsworthy angle and ensure continued media scrutiny — the exact opposite of what Modi wants.
Keep the pressure up: Send PM Modi a clear message — we demand that the Centres are set up as planned!
