खट्टर साहिब के इस बयान से हरियाणा की महिलाओं में ख़ासा रोष है। महिलाओं का कहना है की जो मुख्यमंत्री महिलाओं के ख़िलाफ़ इस तरह के बयान देते हैं, उनके राज्य में महिलायें कैसे सुरक्षित हो सकती हैं। https://t.co/Il6Fwgf1xj

Earlier on Saturday at a function in Kalka town of Panchkula district on Friday, Manoharlal Khattar said, “The incidents of rape have not increased… Rapes used to take place in the past and happens even today. (Only) the concern (over such incidents) has increased. He further added,”The biggest concern is that in 80 to 90 per cent of rape and eve-teasing cases, the accused and the victim know each other. In many cases, they know each other for a long time and, on one day, when there is an argument… an FIR is lodged, saying: ‘He has raped me’.”
