(Mukesh Kaushik) In the case of rape of Hathras's daughter in Uttar Pradesh, Union Minister for Women and Child Development Smriti Irani came under the scanner. He was followed on social media. Asked why they are silent now. He raised his voice during the UPA government and especially after the Nirbhaya case. But now also did not give a small message.
Bhaskar questioned him directly about this. Smriti said that she had an idea that she would come on target. Apart from Smriti, questions were also asked about the outrage against the new agricultural law, the opposition's allegations on the issue of China. Here are the highlights of the interview …
You have been raising your voice against rape. Now why is silent about the daughter of Hathras?
answer: The National Commission for Women and the UP government have been in constant touch with the victim's family. The investigation is going on, so I am not making a public statement. I have discussed with the Chief Minister. Also took information from Home Department officials. He said that an FIR was immediately registered. Through the fast track court, the victim will get justice. The UP government has announced the formation of SIT.
At the time of the Nirbhaya case, you offered the bangles to the then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. Whom will you meet now?
answer: I understand the public outrage against atrocities on women. I have no message for trolls on social media. After winning Amethi, it was but natural that whatever the issue in the country, I will always be on target. I knew this while fighting Amethi. I have accepted it.
Is there a report of forcible execution of the victim?
answer: I am not part of the investigation. CM has pledged justice. Quick action should be taken on those caught. Justice took years in the Nirbhaya case. Do not get involved in this case, that is my wish.
Rahul Gandhi says that daughters are not safe under BJP led government?
answer: Rahul does not speak when journalists in Chhattisgarh and women in Rajasthan are harassed. Rahul does not know that it is the same government which has ensured the death penalty in rape cases. Rahul is the gentleman who tore the ordinance brought by his own Prime Minister.
Opposition alleges that parliamentary procedures were not followed in passing the agriculture bill?
answer: Bills came to the House as a parliamentary process. Were passed by number. Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi were not in Parliament then. The Congress wrote in its 2019 manifesto that it would remove the APMC Act. Does Rahul believe that his mother had issued a black election manifesto.
Rahul Gandhi is saying that the Prime Minister is scared of China. Not even taking the name of China?
answer: The Congress would not have been in a bad situation today if half of its responsibility was kept by many leaders of the opposition in Parliament.
The law was made stricter after the Nirbhaya case. Despite this, why is life not ending?
answer: This was also debated when the Paxo law was introduced. The responsibility lies not just with the administration, but also with every family, community and organizations that spread awareness.
Any strong message to China?
answer: It is the subject of the Prime Minister, Ministry of External Affairs. I am not a headline chaser.
