Delhi Nirbhaya Mother accuses BJP and AAP for their blame games,Asks PM Modi to hang convicts on Jan 22
Aday after a Delhi court stayed the hanging order of four convicts in the Nirbhaya rape-murder case, the victim's mother Asha Devi has made an ardent appeal to Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying "you came to power in 2014 promising safety of women, so please hang them on January 22".
In an interview with ANI, Asha Devi slams both BJP and AAP for blaming each other over the delay in the hanging of the four convicts, Mukesh Singh (32), Vinay Sharma (26), Akshay Kumar Singh (31) and Pawan Gupta (25).
"Till now, I never talked about politics, I have only asked for justice with folded hands. But now I want to say that those people who protested on the streets with the tricolour and black flags in 2012, today they are playing with my daughter's death for political gains," Nirbhaya's mother said with tears in her eyes.
A visibly agitated Asha Devi added, "Some are blaming the government for this delay in delivering justice while some are saying give us the police and we will hang the convicts in two days."
Slamming Delhi minister Manish Sisodia, she said, "Manish Sisodia Ji is saying they will hang the convicts if they get Delhi Police for two days. It feels like they are only making statements to get their demand of having the Delhi Police force."
Stop using us and my daughter for your political gains. I am stuck between the two parties in this struggle for justice, I feel used," she said.
Asha Devi then went on to appeal to PM Modi and said, "You came to power in 2014 saying 'bohot hua naari pe atyachar, abki baar Modi sarkaar', so please hang these rapists on January 22. I appeal to you with folded hands."
