The rapes have to stop. Right now. Not tomorrow, not next month, not within a ‘phased timeframe’. Right now.
All that is needed is effective policing – and enforcement of existing laws. Do not hide behind the ‘delay tactic’ of enacting new laws, forming committees or blaming it on the Indian male.
If you cannot stop the rapes, step down. You have no right to be in your power position. This is your TOP priority – not the economy, not the upcoming election – THIS! Basic safety of citizens. In no city in India can a woman go out alone after dark – and feel completely secure. Not because of Indian men – but because of Indian police (or lack there-of) – and because of Indian politicians such as yourself (who are unable to ensure that the police do their job).
The rapes MUST stop. Right now. Or you must be stopped – from holding your office.
The choice is yours.
