YSRCP seeks assembly session

Hyderabad, April 23, 2013: YSR Congress Party on Tuesday
demanded the Government to convene the assembly session immediately to
discuss the atrocities on women and take steps to prevent them.  

Addressing a media conference here, YSR Congress
spokesperson Roja questioned Chief Minister Kiran Kumar
Reddy why he has been maintaining silence over the increasing number
of rape incidents in the state.  

“Why didn’t you think of calling the assembly session to discuss
the issue and devise ways to prevent recurrence of such atrocities on women,”
she questioned the CM. “Assembly session should be convened immediately to
discuss the issue. I also suggest that Government should discuss the issue with
leaders of all parties seriously and take some concrete decisions to
protect women,” she said.   

Roja squarely blamed the inefficiency of the Congress-led
UPA at the Centre and the KiranKumar Reddy-led Congress Government in the state
for the ever increasing number of rape incidents and atrocities on

“Due to the Government’s inefficiency and its failure to punish
the guilty responsible for such incidents, the criminals are not afraid to
perpetrate these crimes,” she said. “Home department is being handled
by Sabitha Indra Reddy while Sonia is Congress chief
and Shiela Dikshit is Delhi CM. Still, incidence of rape is on
the rise.”  

Referring to the gruesome incident of 5-year old girl
in Delhi and the recent incidents of rape that took place in
several towns of the state including the incident of a mentally challenged
girl, Roja said the Government in the state has totally failed to
protect women.  

The Governments at the Centre and in the state are
not enthusiastic to utilize the services of the police to
protect people and solve people’s problems. “Neglecting the people’s
problems, the Governments are only concentrating on their political
survival. If they had shown the same enthusiasm in solving the
people’s problems, the problems of women and farmers would have already been
solved,” she said, adding that police force also should be properly utilized to
protect people.  

She said CM Kiran Kumar is only interested in
increasing the volumes of liquor business. “He has no interest in solving the
drinking water problems and other issues people are facing,” she said and
added: “The Government has issued 35 GOs to have a liquor
production of 7.5 lakh crore liters.”
