May've been 'one or two' incidents of crime against women: Mamata
Mamata criticised political rivals and the media for claiming that women in Bengal were feeling "unsafe".
Haringhata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday said that there might have been "one or two incidents" of crime against women in the state and criticised political rivals and the media for claiming that they were feeling "unsafe".
"There may be one or two incidents. But that too should not happen and we are for strong action to deal with such crimes. But it is highlighted to give a wrong picture," Banerjee said at a government programme.
Stating that those who committed crimes against women were enemies of society, the chief minister asked women at the programme, "Do you feel unsafe to move out on the roads in the evening?" Several women responded with a 'no'.
She said, "All brothers have the responsibility to protect the honour of their sisters," she said.
