Chanduli: Facing flak over his comments
on rape victims, Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav
on Monday did a U-turn saying he had only spoken about justice to
the rape victims and not about providing government jobs to
them.

"We have said about justice to the rape victims, this
(providing jobs to them) has been added to it," he told
reporters when asked about his yesterday`s statement of
providing government jobs to the rape victims or one of their
family members.

The SP leader said stern action would be taken against
the rapists in the event of his party coming to power in the
state.

Addressing a poll rally in Siddharth Nagar yesterday,
Mulayam had announced that rape victims would be given
government jobs if his party was voted to power in Uttar
Pradesh.

"The incidents of rape will be checked effectively
and government jobs will be given to rape victims or one of
their family members in the state," he had said.

Opposition parties had sharply reacted to Mulayam`s
announcement terming it as "laughable" and a "cruel joke".
