It’s high time to address issue of women’s safety: Sule

Condoling the death of Delhi gang-rape victim, NCP MP Supriya Sule today said it is high time to take up the issue of women’s and young girls’ safety at public and private places as well as at home.

“Early morning, today, received tragic news of death of a rape victim from Delhi. I pray for peace to the great soul. We tried to join her struggle for life, but failed,” Sule said on her blog.

“This is high time for us to retrospect about what has been happening for last 15 days. This is high time for us to take up the issue of women’s and young girls’ safety everywhere, at public places, private spaces and even at our home,” she added.

Government and the police machinery to remain alert on this issue. “Prime Minister himself mentioned that it is up to us all to ensure that her death will not have been in vain…Government, police and administrations at all level need to be alert on this issue,” she said.

We should check all our further actions and our past decisions with respect to the safety of the women, Sule said adding, “This is a difficult time to control our outrage as social groups,” she said.

Meanwhile, a delegation of Rashtravadi Yuvati Congress met Maharashtra DGP Sanjeev Dayal drawing his attention to the rise in crime against women.

They also urged Dayal that police should inform people, through regular media interactions, about the measures taken on the issue of women’s safety.

Meanwhile, Deshbhakti Andolan, a city-based NGO held demonstrations at suburban Bandra here to demand resignation of Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde alleging that he had failed to maintain law and order, in view of the recent gang-rape incident in the national capital.

About INDIA PROTESTS

India Protests 26 is a movement to ensure safety of women and make India Rape Free. Through his movement we plan to do something that has never happened in India. We will protest to ensure justice for the Delhi rape victim in a most peaceful manner ever, on 26th January, 2013. But this protest will be different. We will not come out on streets with placards and shout slogans but will stay indoors and boycott the republic day celebrations as we don’t want to witness India’s show of strength that is not even capable of providing basic safety for women. Let there be empty stands at the parade and let government speak for themselves. Join us to make this movement successful.
