Bengaluru: Karnataka Opposition politician Siddaramaiah launched an attack on the BJP-led government of India for releasing the convicts in Bilkis Bano case.
“Home Minister of India’s order to release the convicts in Bilkis Bano case, exposes the cruel mindset of Indian BJP leaders. They have brought shame to the entire country by granting pardon to these inhuman vultures,” Siddaramaiah stated, as per IANS report.
Home Minister Amit Shah should resign and apologize to the entire nation, he demanded.
“It is unfortunate that BJP party wants to use sensitive issues for their political agenda. The release of those inhuman rapists and murderers is to polarise the electorate ahead of Gujarat elections,” Siddaramaiah was quoted as saying.
The Congress member further stated that for BJP, elections become more important than the concerns of women in this country.
The entire nation has seen the beautiful bond between Modi and his mother. But, why could he not see the pain of the mother who lost her infant and unborn child, Siddaramaiah questioned.
India will not forgive this inhuman decision of BJP government to grant pardon, he stated. Where are the women MPs from BJP? Siddaramaiah questioned.
“If they can’t stand up even for women’s causes, they are unfit to continue in their positions. Can they sleep peacefully knowing that rapists were released by their party for political reasons?,” Siddaramaiah was quoted further saying.
