Indore: Stating that commercial sex
workers too are a part of the society, Congress M P Priya Dutt
on Tuesday said their profession should be legalised.
"I feel that prostitution should be granted a legal
status so that the livelihood of sex workers is not affected,"
the Congress MP said at an interaction with media at the
Indore pres press club.
"They are a part of the society, we can not ignore
their rights," she said.
Priya also said that prostitution is known as the
oldest profession in the world and it has to face exploitation
by society, police and sometimes even by the media.
On the issue of suicides of farmers she said that
since failure to repay loans was the biggest cause, the
government should make policies to facilitate loans at low
Talking about rising prices, she said even she was
affected as a housewife, but the central government was making
efforts to bring the inflation down.
