Jignesh Mevani, the newly elected member of the Gujarat Assembly, on Saturday lashed out at Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Aditynath over the Gorakhpur incident where a Dalit teen tried to kill herself after she was allegedly molested and beaten up by three youths from her village.

“Good morning Sir @narendramodi: I said GM so now pls check below report card of ur fav CM @myogiadityanath: young lady burnt up herself because of harassment of Romeos in UP, Is ur Anti Romeo Squad 4 protection of women & girls or disturbing lovers or जुमला from another CM,” tweeted Mewani, the independent MLA from Gujarat’s Vadgam.

It should be noted that Yogi, after becoming the chief minister, formed the Anti-Romeo Squad to check incidents of rape and sexual assaults in the state.

A 17-year-old girl set herself on fire after she was allegedly molested and beaten up by three youths from her village in Gorakhpur district on Wednesday. She is currently undergoing treatment for 70 per cent burns at BRD Medical College and Hospital, where her condition is said to be critical. READ MORE

          Its a sad incident but the three monkeys of RaGA want to politicise it. Mewani speaks as if attacks on Dalits, molestation etc never happened in India before and has started only after NaMo Government came in power. RaGa is enjoying vacation now but has left the tape recorder on. Mewani... Gujarat election is over boss.... so better do some work for your cons uency rather than the blame game.
