Despite a woman CM, crime against women on rise in Rajasthan: Sachin Pilot

New Delhi: Rajasthan Congress president Sachin Pilot on Tuesday accused the state government of failing to control crime and said it was an “irony” that crime against women was on the rise despite Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje being a woman.

“As per the figures released by the central government, Rajasthan is ranked fourth in cases of atrocities against Dalits and women and rape.

“Chief Minister and Home Minister have completely failed in controlling crime. Law-and-order situation is not good even

in Jhalawar from where the chief minister hails,” he told reporters in Churu.

“It is an irony that chief minister of the state is a woman but crime against women is on the rise,”he said.

The PCC chief and former union minister also held the Raje government responsible for alleged starvation deaths in Udaipur and said the government has failed to provide basic amenities to people.

He also targeted Raje over her claim of providing jobs to nine lakh people in Rajasthan.

“If the claims made by the CM recently is true, the government should release the figures. The government should also present actual figures of the education sector and investment made in the state,” he said.

“BJP has lost confidence of people and the party workers are not satisfied. The public is looking at Congress with a hope,” he said.
