Lucknow: Is UP heading for Presidential rule? After severe criticism from UN Secretary-Genaral, Ban Ki-moon, BJP women wing took on Akhilesh Yadav government for its lawlessness, which saw the gang rape and brutal murder of the two cousins who were found hanging from a tree in the most ignoble state due to the criminal negligence of the UP police.
BJP workers on Monday â€œgheraoedâ€ the CMâ€™s office. The police resorted to firing water cannons on the demonstrators, who had gathered in their hundreds in front of Akhilesh Yadavâ€™s office.
BJP is demanding that FIRs should be lodged against officers right from IG to outpost in-charge in connection with Badaun gang-rape and murder case. It is also demanding a compensation of Rs 25 lakh for the victimsâ€™ family.
Last week, two teenage girls, cousins and aged 14 and 15 years, were allegedly gang-raped and murdered with their bodies found hanging from a tree in Katra village of the district.Â
Meanwhile, Union Women and Child Development Minister Maneka Gandhi has said BJP-led NDA government will set up special centres for rape victims in every district of the country to provide medical as well as legal help to them.
â€œA one-stop centre will be made for them which will not only counsel the victims but will also provide legal help in case anyone needs. A special helpline will also be started to tackle the cases related to crime against women and children,â€ she said.
