Thiruvananthapuram,: Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) National President Poonam Mahajan MP today said women in Kerala wanted to know from the State Chief Minister on how they have to react when atrocities are taking place against them. Reacting to yesterday's remarks against her by Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, Ms Mahajan said the Chief Minister's remarks that women in the State can take law into their hands could not be seen as a credit to the government. "But it is failure of police system as the women lost faith in the government. It is the responsibility of the Chief Minister to explain to women whether he wanted them to take law into their hands or would he ensure their safety," she said in a release here. "Sisters and mothers of Kerala want to know from the Chief Minister how late Vishnu’s mother Mahija should have reacted when the Kerala Police dragged her on the roads," she said. He should also tell women how a Dalit girl, Chithralekha of Payyannur in Kannur, should have reacted when CPI(M) men banned her from driving her auto for earning livelihood, she asked. "Women all over the country want know how the Principal of Government Victoria College in Kerala should have reacted when SFI activists prepared a ‘grave’ for her as a ‘retirement gift'. Women also want to know from you, how should they have reacted to your party leader’s comment that the ‘grave’ was an “art installation.’ "The Chief Minister should tell the people in Kerala how women in the State should have reacted when housewife, Vimala, was burnt alive by CPI (M) men in Palakkad," she said. Mothers in Kerala want to know the Chief Minister’s reaction to the burning of the chair of Maharajas College Principal by SFI activists. Women in Kerala want to know how the famous actress should have reacted when she was abducted and harassed in a moving car in Aluva? What would be Chief Minister’ advice to women in his state when Ayurvedic doctor, Dr. Geetha P. Nambiar, could not run her clinic due to dislike of CPI(M) local leader towards her. "How you are going to console the widows, mothers and sisters of your own constituency and home district Kannur where hundreds youths have been hacked to death. The people in Kerala believe that the Chief Minister has blind support of his party men to carry out murders in Kannur and other parts of the State. The Chief Minister should also answer questions on the recent incidents of sexual abuse of seven children at Kalpetta and death of two minor sisters at Walayar in Palakkad. Minor school girls in Kerala also want to know from you how they should have reacted when a seven-year-old minor girl was raped in an orphanage at Kalpetta in Wayanad? The average crime rate in Kerala against women is 63 crimes per lakh, against the national average of 56.3. 1644 cases of rape have been reported in Kerala till December 2016. A total of 14,061 cases of crimes against women were reported in the same period. The total number of crimes against women escalated steeply this year, compared to the number of 10781 cases in 2010. "These are the reasons, and many more, why I have demanded that an SIT be set up to look into the law and order situation in Kerala. It is the very least that we can do to protect our women," she added.
