The Punjab Pradesh Mahila Congress Saturday flayed the state government for its inability to safeguard the honour and dignity of women,and demanded that Nawanshahr SSP,Dhanpreet Kaur,be transferred for failing to register a case against singer Honey Singh despite getting a complaint nearly four months ago.
Mahila Congress vice-president Nimisha Mehta said the state government was forced to register a case against Honey Singh only after being pulled up by Punjab and Haryana High Court,which has exposed the real face of the SAD-BJP governments insensitivity towards women related issues.
In a press statement,Mehta taking a dig at Akali MP Harsimrat Kaur Badal said,Why did Harsimrat,who claims to be the self appointed guardian of the women in the state,failed to hear the state level protests against the singer,who used to picturise women as a commodity and malign the image of women by singing such cheap songs? Harsimrat neither issued any statement nor initiate any action in this regard.
She said the government took two days after the HC order to register a case against Honey Singh. It is the duty of the home minister to clarify why administration avoided registering an FIR,despite the HC order, Mehta said,while demanding immediate transfer of Nawanshahr SSP Dhanpreet Kaur.
We will organise a seminar to discuss the issue of vulgarity in songs. Punjabi film and music personalities will be invited and clean and meaningful songs will be promoted, she added.
