TMC MP Mimi Chakraborty has supported the statement of Rajya Sabha MP Jaya Bachchan on Monday handing over the punishment to the public for punishment. Jaya Bachchan asked for ‘lynching’ of rapists. Chakraborty said that only immediate punishment can protect women from such people. He said, ‘I agree with him. I don’t think the rapists should be taken to court with safety and then wait for justice. Should be punished immediately. He said this by tweeting. In the second tweet, he said, ‘I request all concerned ministers to enact such a strong law that a person should think 100 times not only before committing rape, but also before seeing a woman with the wrong intent.’ The gang rape and ruthless killing of a female vet in Hyderabad on Monday drew strong condemnation in both houses of parliament and demonstrators took to the streets in various states. The Center said that it is ready to amend the law to bring in stringent provisions and ensure speedy justice.

Samajwadi Party member Jaya Bachchan strongly condemned the incident in the Rajya Sabha and demanded that the security in-charge of the place be held accountable. Bachchan said that a similar incident took place in Hyderabad at the same place a day earlier. Why shouldn’t the security in-charge be made accountable there? Why shouldn’t they be questioned? Why did they not discharge their responsibilities in a proper way? She said, “This is not the first time I have stood up to speak on such an issue.” Nirbhaya scandal, Kathua scandal… It has not stopped. Jaya said “there should not be any leniency with rape convicts, strict punishment should be given to them and action should be taken publicly against them”. He said that people doing such work should be mobilized and lynching. MPs of all parties in the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha condemned the Hyderabad case ‘in one voice’ and demanded stringent legislation to punish the culprits of crimes against women within a stipulated time frame. Defense Minister Rajnath Singh said during the Zero Hour in the lower house that he could not find words to condemn this heinous crime.
