India on Monday expressed its displeasure at the United Nations (UN) raising the issue of violence against women in Uttar Pradesh. The issue was raised by UN Resident Resident Coordinator Reneta Deselian in India. To this, Foreign Ministry spokesman Anurag Shrivastava (MEA) said that the Resident Coordinator of the UN in India made unnecessary comments on some incidents of violence against women in India. They should know that the government has taken these matters very seriously. They are currently under investigation. In such a situation, any external agency should refrain from commenting on such matters.
Shrivastava said that the Constitution of India gives equal rights to all citizens. As a democracy, we have proved this from time to time by giving justice to all the people of society. Such comments are not correct in our cases.
What did the UN official say

This points to the fact that there is still a danger of discrimination on the basis of gender with Dalit girls in India. However, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has not yet commented on this matter. UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath tweeted that he had a discussion with the Prime Minister on this issue. The Prime Minister has directed to take strict action against the culprits. We support it.
