Congress ask Mulayam to immediately apologise for rape remarks
Slamming Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav for his rape remarks, Congress today said that he should immediately apologize and take back his words
“Comment by such a senior leader is not only objectionable, but also it is sad and shameful. Mulayam Singh’s remarks show that how much respect he has for women in his heart, and how irresponsible he is towards women’s security,” Congress leader Meem Afzal said.
Afzal said that the government in Uttar Pradesh is running under the guidance of Mulayam Singh and such comments could send a wrong message among young boys across the state.
“Mulayam Singh should immediately take back his works and apologize,” the Congress leader said.
Questioning the death sentence to three men who were convicted for two gangrapes in Mumbai last week, Mulayam Singh had yesterday asked, “Should rape cases be punished with hanging?
“Ladke, ladke hain. Galti ho jati hai (Boys are boys. Mistakes happen sometimes),” he told an election rally in Moradabad.
