With the shocking data of NCRB about over 40,000 women gone missing from the PM’s and HM’s home state, the Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) has expressed shock over the report of such a huge number of missing women and asked the BJP’s State and Central governments to inform the nation about their whereabouts. In a press statement, Yasmin Farooqui, National general secretary of SDPI expressed deep concern about the missing women.
The reaction came after National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) published a data that shows that within a span of five years from 2016 to 2020, 41,621 women are reported to have gone missing from Gujarat, the home state of the country’s prime minister and home minister. Farooqui took exception at the BJP for its nasty politics over the recently released propaganda film, The Kerala Story, while the nation’s own agency has come up with this startling report of the more than 40,000 women gone missing, some of whom, as stated by some senior police officers, were pushed into prostitution.
The SDPI leader questioned the BJP for its utter failure to protect women, leave aside empower them. “We at SDPI are deeply concerned about the future of the missing women and the security of other women in Gujarat and elsewhere in India,” Farooqui said.
