- Jaya Bachchan says rapists should be lynched
- Ready to make strictest law Rajnath Singh condemns rape-murder of Hyderabad veterinarian
On Monday, the anger on the streets was reflected in parliament with many MPs demanding to know what action the government planned to take to make the country safer for women.
Samajwadi Party MP Jaya Bachchan condemned the horrific rape and murder of a 27-year old veterinarian near Hyderabad in Telangana last week. “People now want the government to give a proper and a very definite answer. These types of people need to be brought in public and lynched,” Jaya Bachchan said in the Upper House. Several other MPs also condemned the brutal gang-rape and murder.
Senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad also spoke on the issue, “The whole nation has to get together to finish this from roots. We have to create an atmosphere where such incidents do not happen. Stricter punishments should be given.”
Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Monday said in Lok Sabha that there “cannot be a bigger inhuman act” than the heinous crime and the government was ready to bring the strictest law over brutality against women if there is consensus in the House. The Defence Minister, who is also the Deputy Leader of the House, said, “Entire country is hurt. All lawmakers cutting across party lines have condemned the incident and demanded to give harsher punishment to the accused involved in the incident.”
Ghulam Nabi Azad speaks in the Rajya Sabha on the horrific Hyderabad gang-rape and murder case. He says, “Many laws have been made, but looks like they are not enough. The whole nation has to get together to finish this from roots. We have to create an atmosphere where such incidents do not happen. Stricter punishments should be given.”
Venkaiah Naidu speaks on Hyderabad gang-rape and murder says, “What happened in Hyderabad is a disgrace to our society and value system. We should see why such things are happening and we should look for remedial measures. I would want all to make suggestions.”
