'Give decision taking power to women to solve social problems'

'Give decision taking power to women to solve social problems'

Most of the social problems may be solved if women have decision taking power. Unfortunately, in India politicians take decisions on the security of women and it should be condemned, said Akhila Bharatha Vidhyarti Parishat (ABVP) National Secretary Mamata Yadav. 

Speaking at a protest rally against Deralakatte kidnap, harassment and rape incident, organised by Jagruta Mahila Vedike in Nehru Maidan here on Thursday, Mamata Yadav said that though many organisations have condemned the inhumane incident in Deralakatte and demanded the State government to act against it, the government is hesitating to act against culprits because of political reasons. However, women should continue with their demand for justice. They may not get it overnight, but they will in future, she said.

“In Dakshina Kannada district, which is known as education hub, Love Jihad is active. In past 10 years, more 24,000 girls have gone missing. The illegal cow trafficking is also going on. The State government is running away from its responsibilities. Students should raise their voices against these developments. Women should learn self-defence skills to become strong physically, as well as mentally,” she added.  

ABVP leader Ashwini said that the forum is ready to fight along with other women organisations for the victim of Deralakatte incident, till she gets justice. Police should take stringent action against the culprits, and justice should not be delayed, she said.

 Sending a strong message to anti-social activists, she said: “Transporting girls is not easy like cow trafficking. Some say that girls become rape victims because of their provocative dress, then why did culprits raped Saujanya and murdered though she was neatly dressed?” she asked.  
  Balabhavan Society former president Sulochana G K Bhat said that in Deralakette case, there was political pressure on police. No medical examination was conducted in  time. There was vote politics. No women organisations have visited the place; even MLA Shakunthala Shetty also didn’t visit the place. Jagruta Mahila Vedike President Dr S R Leela said that the politics which divides society should be stopped. 

A memorandum was submitted to the Deputy Commissioner to act against culprits. Matanandamayi of Odiyooru Mutt, Jagruta Mahila Vedike Members Asha Prasad Rai, Convenor Pushpalatha Gatti, Assistant Convenor Asha Jagadish, Kalladka Prabhakar Bhat of Rastriya Swayamsevak Sangh, Mangalore MP Nalin Kumar Kateel, MLCs Monappa Bhandary, Captain Ganesh Karnik and others were also present.
