MUMBAI: A day after chief minister Uddhav Thackeray’s strongly worded reply to governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari on atrocities against women, Congress spokesperson Sachin Sawant on Wednesday alleged that the Devendra Fadnavis regime from 2014-19 was a dark era for women.
On Tuesday, Koshyari had asked the CM to convene a special session of state legislature to discuss the law and order situation, particularly atrocities against women.
Quoting from a recent report of the National Crime Records Bureau, Sawant said it had been clearly established that atrocities against women were on the rise in BJP-ruled states. “It is not my information, it has come from the ministry of home affairs, it is available on the website of the home department,’’ Sawant said.
He alleged that Maharashtra has achieved the dubious distinction of leading the states in atrocities against women. From 35,497 cases in 2018, the cases increased to 37,144 in 2019, while during the MVA government, the cases decreased to 31,954 in 2020. “We support the demand made by Thackeray for a special session of Parliament to discuss the law and order situation in BJP-ruled states. The BJP, too, should support the CM’s proposal,’’ Sawant said.
Responding to a memorandum submitted by a BJP delegation, Koshyari had asked the chief minister to hold a special two-session of the legislature, evoking a sharp reaction from the CM.
