Jaya Bachchan denounces government over Manipur riots
Jaya told reporters in Delhi on Monday, “Manipur Ke Vishey Main International Sub Log Chalcha Ka Rahe Hein, Humale Desh Mein Nahi Ho Rahi Hai” . What’s more important than that? “Sorry Chalcha wo karana nahi chahte hain (Manipur is discussed internationally but not in our country. What more can I say. The government doesn’t want discussion)” Kya ho raha hai UP mein, Madhya Pradesh mein, aap butayiye. Baki jo kuch bhi unka bacha hai, aage toh bachega bhi nahi (Government talks about problems in other states, but what about Uttar Pradesh and parliamentarians? They should also explain what is happening in their states. In any case, those state governments won’t last long.) said. He paraded naked because he was “embarrassed.” She told ANI news agency in Hindi, “I couldn’t watch the whole video because I felt so sick. i was ashamed This happened in May and is now spreading rapidly. But no one uttered a single word of sympathy. This is about women’s safety.
She also said, ‘We chose women who were 50 percent of her on the panel.’ Something happens to women every day. In the UP you never know what is going on there, Yogi Adityanat Ji never says. What is happening to women across the country? What a humiliation!
