BJP demands Special Parliament session to discuss rape cases

Senior BJP leader M Venkaiah Naidu has demanded that the Congress-led UPA Government at the Centre convene a special session of Parliament to discuss the rising incidents of crimes against women.

Addressing a press conference here on Thursday, Venkaiah Naidu said that the Centre has confined itself to making statements and hollow promises. However, he said that no concrete step was taken after the Delhi gang-rape case to prevent recurrence of such cases across the country. Stating that the speedy trials and stern punishment for culprits could prevent such incidents, he demanded that the special moral science should be included in the syllabus to educate the students against committing such heinous crimes.

While welcoming the governments of Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, Punjab and Madhya Pradesh for proposing to frame stringent laws for crimes against women, he demanded that the Centre should convene a special session of Parliament to discuss this issue.

The BJP leader also slammed the Centre approving visa for former Pakistan cricketer Javed Miandad, who is also related to gangster Dawood Ibrahim.
