"Naari Virodhi (anti-woman) Adityanath has not only utterly failed in his constitutional duties as the Chief Minister and abused the oath of office but also played an important protagonist in safeguarding the interests of the rape accused BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar", he added.

He also declared that his government had increased the amount of scholarship awarded to Dalit students from Rs 2250 to Rs 3000 which would be credited in their bank accounts in two instalments in October and January without any lapses. "Our government will not compromise on this issue, no matter how influential the accused is, he will not be spared", Chief Minister Adityanath told reporters here.

The process of recommending a CBI inquiry was promptly completed, the central probe agency has already taken over the case and has detained the accused MLA for questioning, he pointed out. This comes a day after a senior BJP leader in Uttar Pradesh claimed that the Chief Minister had chose to arrest the accused MLA but his decision was changed after the intervention of a "prominent person". The Chief Minister had also made a decision to expel two MLAs from Unnao. "The party has to suffer the outcome of this decision".


Previously the victim's father died in judicial custody nearly a week after he was reportedly thrashed by the MLA's brother and others.

The case came into the limelight after the victim tried to immolate herself on Sunday outside Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's residence, alleging police inaction against Sengar. On April 9, he died in hospital.

The victim's father died in judicial custody nearly a week after he was reportedly thrashed by the MLA's brother and others. Today, Allahabad High Court ordered the arrest of the BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar for allegedly raping a 17-year-old girl last year. The accused who has defended himself by saying that it the conspiracy of his opponents, has been charged under the POCSO Act and sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
