Women not safe under TDP govt: Roja

Hyderabad: YSRCP leader Roja today alleged that there was no protection to women under the regime of Chandrababu Naidu.
“TDP leader and MLA Balakrishna and Nara Lokesh have no respect for women and some leaders of that party also have the same mentality”, Roja alleged and demanded Nandamuri Balakrishna apologize to womenfolk for his comment during a cinema function against women.
Lamenting for dragging her leader Jagan’s name in the episode of Sushil, son of AP Social Welfare Minister Ravela Kishore Babu, Roja said it was a ridiculous statement and the CCTV footage clearly showed that Sushil had misbehaved with a woman. Had this incident happened in AP, it would have not come to a light, she observed.
Govt has no right to observe Women’s Day
With the TDP government on one hand and the party MLAs and leaders on the other resorting to atrocities on women on a day-to-day basis, they have no moral right to conduct Women’s Day celebrations, Roja said and demanded removal of Ravela Kishore Babu from the cabinet for his son’s assault on a woman.
“We are seeing some atrocity or the other on women by the government itself and the ruling party leaders at various levels. The minister’s son attempted to molest a woman in full public view in Hyderabad. Another girl Indumati, a minor, was burnt alive in Eluru. Hundreds of women were forced into sex racket by TDP leaders in call money scam. Rishiteshwari was forced to commit suicide. A woman MRO was thrashed by an MLA in full public view. What is your moral right to conduct Women’s Day celebrations?” she questioned. (NSS)
