Monsoon session in the Parliament have not been as good as BJP would have liked it to be, especially after the Mayawati-Dayashankar issue. On Wednesday there was an uproar in the Rajya Sabha after BSP supremo Mayawati spoke, following the case in Madhya Pradesh where Hindu Dal activists allegedly beat up two muslim women for allegedly carrying beef. BJP had already been reeling under pressure because to the Dalit uprising issue in Gujarat, and now there has been accusations against the party for being sexist.
Mayawati has constantly attacked BJP on the issue. Reacting and raising the issue, Mayawati said in the Upper House that, “BJP raises ‘Mahilaon ke samman mein,BJP maidan mein’ slogan, yet in BJP ruled Madhya Pradesh women thrashed on beef rumours.” While Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said that it is alright if cows are protected but using that as a tool to target Dalits and Muslims, is something that we are against.
Reacting on the allegations and comments by Mayawati, MoS for Parliamentary Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said, “Violence in any state is condemnable, we do not justify anything. MP Government took action on the issue about which Mayawati spoke about.”
