PM Modi visiting poll-bound states but not Manipur, says Gehlot

Jaipur: In a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot expressed his dismay over the Prime Minister's decision not to visit the violence-hit Manipur. 

Gehlot criticized Modi for prioritizing visits to states like Karnataka and Rajasthan during elections but ignoring Manipur, which is under his government's rule. He emphasized that such actions raised questions about Modi's approach toward different states based on their political affiliations.

Furthermore, the Senior Congress leader disapproved of Modi's reference to incidents in Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh while discussing the horrifying video of women being paraded naked and molested in Manipur. Gehlot highlighted that such remarks had hurt the sentiments of the people in Rajasthan.

The Rajasthan CM suggested that instead of merely making references, PM Modi should have taken more proactive measures, like holding a meeting to review the situation in Manipur. This, according to Gehlot, would have demonstrated genuine concern for the safety and well-being of the people in the affected state.

PM Modi had earlier addressed the issue of sexual assault on women in Manipur and urged all Chief Ministers to focus on improving law and order in their respective states. However, Gehlot emphasized that such concerns should be addressed with sensitivity and respect, as they pertain to the dignity and honor of women across the nation.

In a related incident, a minister in Gehlot's Cabinet faced consequences for criticizing the government's handling of crimes against women in Rajasthan. The minister, Rajendra Singh Gudha, was swiftly removed from his position following his remarks in the state assembly.

Subsequently, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot recommended to Governor Kalraj Mishra that Minister Rajendra Singh Gudha be removed from his role, indicating the seriousness with which the state government viewed the matter.

Overall, the situation in Manipur and the reactions from various political leaders highlight the need for a more empathetic and responsive approach to addressing issues related to women's safety and well-being in different parts of the country.
