NFN Bureau: During a heated debate in Lok Sabha yesterday, Smriti Irani came under fire from Congress and some opposition parties over rising rape cases in BJP-ruled Uttar Pradesh.
As the debate took political and communal turn, Smriti Irani lashed out at the Opposition asking them not to communalise and politicise the Unnao Rape case.
BJD MP Anubhav Mohanty supported Smriti, saying it’s very dangerous to give a political and communal colour to rape cases although everyone is sad and worried about crime against women. He also sought action against two Congress MPs.
Smriti later quoted Anubhav Mohanty and said, “yes, the rape and killing of a woman is inhuman, but it should not be communalised or politicised as said by the BJD MP. No one has ever dared to communalise the issue in this House. But, it was done today”.
Both Smriti & Anubhav were seen at the same page on this issue.
