“I think the people now want a proper and definite answer from govt”: Jaya Bachchan


Delhi:  Samajwadi Party MP Jaya Bachchan led a chorus of angry and impassioned voices as parliament debated the safety of women and children amid national outrage over the gang rape and murder of a young veterinarian in Telangana. “These types of people (the rape accused in the Telangana case) need to be brought out in public and lynched,” Jaya Bachchan said. Four men have been accused of raping and murdering a 26-year old woman in Hyderabad on Wednesday night. The incident led to massive protests in Telangana and an outpouring of rage and grief across the country. The accused, aged between 20 and 26, have been arrested and three cops have been suspended for negligence. “I don’t know how many times I’ve stood and spoken after this kind of crime. I think it is time whether Nirbhaya or Kathua or what happened in Telangana, I think the people now want the government to give a proper and definite answer,” a calm but clearly furious Jaya Bachchan told the Rajya Sabha.” Mrs Bachchan also demanded that the people who fail to protect women and children from such horrific assaults should be “named and shamed”. She was not the only MP to express fury and concern at the law-and-order situation in the country today.
