Rana to move Bill for death sentence for rape of minor
In the backdrop of Kathua rape-n-murder…
JAMMU MARCH 27- National Conference Provincial President and MLA Devender Singh Rana on Tuesday said that he will move a Private Member’s Bill in the Legislative Assembly for death sentence to those committing rape of minors.
“Rape of a girl child is most inhuman act”, Rana said while interacting with a delegation of National Conference workers from Kathua here this afternoon.
The Provincial President lamented the attempts of communalizing and pliticising crimes, saying this speaks of the lowest depths the politics has touched.
He said the divisive policies being pursued by the BJP and the PDP have brought Jammu and Kashmir to a passé. While Kashmir is boiling, Jammu is seething, Ladakh too is becoming restive. The coalition, he said, has failed on all fronts and the promises made are now haunting the government, which is just by name and invisible on ground zero.
He said conspiracies are being hatched under the garb of illegal immigrants to harass the people, living in harmony for centuries. “This is unacceptable”, he said, adding that National Conference will continue to fight for isolating the elements dividing society in the name of region, religion or caste.
In a scathing attack on the BJP, the Provincial President asked about the promises made to people living along International Border and Line of Control, who continue to live under perpetual threat and offering sacrifices.
