Samajwadi Party’s Hoarding Response To UP Name-and-Shame Posters

The hoarding displayed pictures of rape accused Chinmayanand and Unnao rape convict Kuldeep Sengar along with the details of their criminal cases.

Lucknow| A Samajwadi Party leader put up a hoarding in Lucknow with photos of former BJP leader Kuldeep Sengar and rape-accused ex-Union Minister Chinmayanand. The banner was put up right next to a controversial hoarding by the Yogi Adityanath government naming those accused of violence during protests against the citizenship law.

Tweeting a picture of the hoardings, which stand right next to those depicting 53 anti-CAA protesters, Samajwadi Party’s national spokesperson IP Singh said: “When protesters don’t have any privacy and even after the orders of High Court and Supreme Court, Yogi Government is not taking down hoardings. So I have also decided to put up get some hoardings of named criminals, our daughters should be aware of them.”

“These are the culprits of the state, stay away from them,” he said.

“My poster will be opposed by only those who are supporting anti-women people and rapists. If the government will insult the high court and the Supreme Court and do something anti-constitutional, then the BJP must look into its own faults. The BJP is anti-women,” he said in a tweet in Hindi.

His tweet accompanied a photograph of the poster.

Former BJP MLA Kuldeep Sengar was convicted for the rape of a teenager in Unnao. Chinmayanand, also an ex-BJP leader, was arrested in September last year after a law student enrolled in one of his educational institutions at UP’s Shahjahanpur accused him of sexually exploiting her for over a year. Soon afterwards, the 23-year-old woman was also taken into custody on charges of trying to extort money from the former Union Minister.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court on Thursday questioned the Uttar Pradesh government’s action of putting up posters against the citizenship law violence-accused, saying there is no law to back the action.
