“How Can 4 Men Rape a Girl? Not Practical”: Mulayam Singh Yadav
“How can 4 men rape a woman at once? It is not Practical”. UP Samajwadi Party Chief Mulayam Singh Yadav put himself in trouble by making comments about gang-rapes on women. “Often if one person commits rape, four people are named in the complaint. Four people are named for rape, can it be possible? It is not practical. They probably say one was watching…another was there… If there are four brothers, then all four are named”, said Mulayam Singh. At a program to distribute free e-rickshaws under a state government scheme in the state capital, he said that opposition is making unnecessary fuss about safety in UP. Compared to other states, safety in UP is much higher and the count of raoes is higher in BJP-led states like Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan, he said.
Mulayam Singh had triggered controversy in past by saying ‘Boys will be Boys, they make mistakes. Will they be hanged for raping girls?’.
