Rajya Sabha Demands Strict and Quick Action against Hyderabad Rape Accused
Rajya Sabha MPs on Monday demanded quick and stern action against the guys who committed the Hyderabad horror last week. Jaya Bachchan demanded the culprits be lynched, while the AIADMK MP Vijila said that the accused shall be hanged till death before December 31.
“People now want Govt to give a definite answer. These types of people (the accused in a rape case) need to be brought out in public and lynched,” Jaya Bachchan said in the Upper House of the Parliament.
The leader of the opposition, Ghulam Nabi Azad, said such incidents can’t be dealt alone through making new laws; we all need to stand together against such acts of crime.
“No government or leader would want that such incident occurs in their state. This problem can’t be solved by just making laws. To eradicate such acts, there’s a need that we take a stand together against such crimes,” Azad said.
Vice-President and Rajya Sabha Chairman, M Venkaiah Naidu said we don’t need a bill, but ”political will, administrative skill, change of mindset”.
“What is required is not a new bill. What is required is political will, administrative skill, change of mindset and then go for the kill of the social evil,” the Vice-President stated.
“The country is not safe for children & women. 4 people who committed this crime should be hanged until death before Dec 31. A fast track court should be set up. Justice delayed is justice denied,” said AIADMK MP, Vijila Sathyananth.
“I request all the systems, judiciary, legislative, executive & other systems to come together to see that a social reformation takes place. This should be on an emergency basis,” Congress MP Amee Yajnik said in her address in Rajya Sabha.
