Auraiya (UP): Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam
Singh Yadav on Monday ridiculed Chief Minister Mayawati for
promising a fearless society, alleging that a 1,900 incidents
of rape had taken place in the state during BSP tenure.

"BSP claims it has given `bhay-mukt samaj` but the truth
is different. There were 1,900 rapes during the Mayawati
regime," Yadav said at a poll meeting here.

At the same time, the SP chief admitted that around 1,300
rape cases were reported during his tenure, but the difference
is that strict action was taken by his government against the
accused, unlike during Mayawati regime.

"Strict action was taken against those involved in rape
incidents during SP regime, but now the accused are roaming
fearlessly," he alleged.
