Natinalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Asha Mirje made controversial statements over the Delhi Gang rape incident i.e, Nirbhaya rape in the year 2012. Mirje said women are also to be blamed in the rape incidents. She posed few questions in Nirbhaya rape and journo rape incidents which are drew huge set back from many leaders.
“Did Nirbhaya really have go to watch a movie at 11 in the night with her friend? Take the Shakti Mills gang-rape case. Why did the (survivor) go to such an isolated spot at 6 pm? Rapes take place also because of a woman's clothes, her behavior and her being at inappropriate places,” said Mirje at a gathering of NCP's women workers in Nagpur on Tuesday.
Ironically Asha Mirje is also a member of the Maharashtra Women's Commission and her statements came when the rape incidents and crime on women are increasing at a rapid speed. However, the NCP is yet to react on this comments.
