Men should change their mind-set:Vijayamma

Anigandlapadu (Krishna
Dt) April 20, 2013: YSR Congress Party honourary president Smt. Y.S. Vijayamma
on Saturday called for a change in the mind set of men saying they should
cultivate viewing women as their sisters, mothers and daughters.

Addressing people prior
to staging a silent sit-in at Anigandlapadu village in Krishna district in protest
against the ghastly raping incident of a five-year old girl in Delhi, Smt.
Vijayamma said it was distressing to note that atrocities on women were on the
rise day by day.

She condemned the Delhi
rape incident and said the Central and state Governments should also act tough against
the perpetrators of such crimes. “Daily we are coming across such heinous crimes.
To prevent recurrence of such incidents, men should change their mindset and
treat women as their sisters, mothers and daughters besides the Governments
strictly implementing the laws,” she said.

Smt. Vijayamma, Smt. Y.
S. Sharmila and   YSRCP spokesperson
Vasireddy Padma staged the sit-in silently stripping their mouths with black ribbons
along with hundreds of followers.

lack security: Sharmila

Smt. Y.S. Sharmila, who
cancelled her scheduled Rachchabanda programme and staged the protest, said women
lacked security in the Congress rule.

“It is unfortunate that
this incident has happened even before the people forgot the Nirbhaya incident.
Despite Sonia Gandhi being the Congress party chief and Shiela Dikshit the
Delhi CM, women are feeling insecure with repetition of such heinous crimes
almost every day” she lamented.

Citing the recent
Tenali incident, she said the increasing number of wine shops and bars are responsible
for atrocities on women in the state and pointed out CM Kiran Kumar Reddy has
been aiming to increase the liquor sales by 15 per cent every month.

“The things are no
different from the Chandrababu Naidu regime. Anuradha, a victim of acid attack
during the Naidu regime, was not helped by him despite the orders of the
Supreme Court. After YSR became CM, he helped the victim with some financial
aid,” she said.
