New Delhi. Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, the Congress leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha on Tuesday gave another controversial statement stating that India is slowly heading towards 'rape in India' from 'Make in India', which is an initiative of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. "It is unfortunate that the Prime Minister, who speaks on everything, is silent on this issue (crimes against women). From 'Make in India', India is slowly heading towards 'rape in India'," said Chowdhury. 


Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury on December 4 had to seek an apology for calling Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman as "Nirbala" (weak). "I had addressed our Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman as 'Nirbala'. Nirmala ji is like my sister and I am like her brother. If my words have hurt her, then I express my regret," Chowdhury had said. Meanwhile, former Congress President Rahul Gandhi lashed out at PM Modi saying, "India has become rape capital of the world. Prime Minister Narendra Modi maintains silence over rape incidents. His MLA in Uttar Pradesh was accused of a woman's rape, he maintained silence. The women are being burnt, shot down and raped in the country but Modi maintains silence." 


On December 6, the Unnao rape victim was set on fire by four men, including two rape accused, while she was en route to Rae Bareli for a court hearing. The rape accused had been out on bail since November 30. The victim was first rushed to a government hospital and then shifted to the civil hospital in Lucknow with 90 per cent burn injuries. She was later airlifted to the Safdarjung hospital in Delhi the same evening where she succumbed to her injuries on Friday night. As the incident created a political storm, the Yogi Adityanath government on Sunday night suspended seven policemen for alleged negligence of duty.
