Listen to the news
Congress must take action before making slogans
BJP leader Smriti Irani said the statement made by the Congress MLA on rape in the assembly was very shameful. Congress MLAs should be sacked before they talk about women’s empowerment and shout ‘Girl Hoon, Lad Sakte Hoon’.
Set an example by giving punishment
Samajwadi Party MP Jaya Bachchan said it was a shameful act, a shameful act. The party should take strict action against such people. How does change come about if people at home have similar ideas? Ideally, such people should be severely punished.
History of Congress
BJP MP Anil Baluni said that a Congress MLA from Karnataka has been watching obscene remarks on TV channels since this morning. This is a very sad and shameful statement. The Congress has a history of constantly making such remarks against women.
The Women’s Commission was also critical
Rekha Sharma, chairperson of the National Commission for Women (NCW), said on Ramesh Kumar’s statement that it was sad that a Member of Parliament in the Assembly for the betterment of the people, including women, was making such remarks. He is not sensitive and is unaware of the impact of rape on women.
What is the matter
Congress MLA KR Ramesh Kumar said during a debate in the Karnataka Assembly that there is a saying that when rape is inevitable, lie down and have fun. He said the president was in exactly the same position. Karnataka Assembly Speaker Vishweshwar Hegde Kageri laughed at not taking action on it.
Apologized after the altercation
MLA KR Ramesh Kumar has apologized for his obscene and obscene remarks on rape. Ramesh Kumar apologized through social media that it was not his intention to underestimate the crime.
From now on, I will choose my words carefully, ”Ramesh Kumar tweeted. “Rape!” In the assembly. I extend my heartfelt apologies to everyone for the comments I made indifferently and recklessly I do not mean to misunderstand or underestimate the deadly guilt, but it is an off-the-cuff comment! From now on I will carefully convey my words to all of you.
