Amritsar, October 3

Various city-based organisations such as Independent Students Federation (ISF), Folklore Research Academy, Pragatisheel Lekhak Sangh, Amritsar, Democratic Teachers Front and former Minister Lakshmi Kanta Chawla flayed rape and brutal murder of a young woman in UP, here today.

Members of the Folklore Research Academy, Pragatisheel Lekhak Sangh, Amritsar, Democratic Teachers Front held a protest against the UP government. They converged at the Bhandari railway overbridge and raised slogans against the Yogi government.

Inderjit Vashisht and Ramesh Yadav, Patron and President of the Academy, respectively, said the Yogi Adityanath government ineptly handled the brutal and murder of the Dalit girl. He said the police did not carry out its job judiciously and did not help the distressed family in the hour of crisis. They hit out at the Narendra Modi government for handing over the assets of the country to the corporate houses.

In a separate protest led by Shilpa Kohli, President of the ISF, they held a protest outside the Hathi Gate against the UP government for failing to secure the dignity of women. They burnt the effigy of the UP Government.

She said Manisha, a young Dalit woman from Hathras, was gangraped and brutally murdered. She demanded exemplary and prompt punishment from the judiciary in the incident. Veteran BJP leader Lakshmi Kanta Chawla expressed her concern over repeated assault on the modesty of women in the country. She called upon social servants, politicians, religious leaders and parents to impart values to their children. — TNS
