Senior Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan today slammed the Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh over deterioration of law and order situation.
Speaking to reporters here after the Rampur incident where a group of men molested two women in broad day light, Khan said that the situation in the state is such that ‘men should try and keep their women indoors’.
In a sardonic attack at the BJP dispensation, Khan said looking at the accelerating cases of crime in the state, ladies should avoid going to suspicious places.
"There is nothing astonishing in the fact that incidents of murders, loot. Rapes are being reported under this government. After the Bulandshahr incident men should try and keep their women and ladies of the house indoor as much as possible. And women should also avoid going to suspicious or lone places," he said.
"I would like to congratulate Yogi-government that negligence of his government has got crime accelerated in the state. In few days of Yogi-government numerous rape took place, many were murdered across the state," he added.
A video surfaced on social media where around 12 to 14 boys are seen molesting girls in broad daylight and filming the act in Rampur.
The accused could be seen heckling, manhandling and molesting the girls and passing objectionable comments on them. The girls could be seen begging to be spared all the while.
Police have registered a case and arrested one of the accused.
