Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said that sons should be made more responsible in order to ensure a safer environment for our daughters. Pm Modi in his address to the National Panchayati Raj Sammelan at Ramnagar said the proclamation of an ordinance on rape showed that the Centre had acted on people’s outrage on sexual crimes against minors.
Earlier the government passed an ordinance allowing courts to award the death penalty to those convicted of raping girls below the age of 12 years.
Mr. Modi also called for a social movement to ensure the safety of girls.
“There is a government in Delhi which listens to your voice and takes decisions. So, the Centre has made a provision for capital punishment to the monstrous intent,” he said.
“Families will have to enhance the honour and respect of daughters. Families should also make their sons more responsible. In this way, the safety of daughters would not be a difficult task,” PM Modi added.
