No 'clear trend' establishing increased misuse of sedition law: Govt
Wednesday, 16 September 2020 The home ministry on Wednesday said statewise data received by the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) on ‘sedition’ cases filed under Section 124A of the Indian Penal Code during the period 2014-18, does not reveal any “clear trend”.
BJP National spokesperson Rajyavardhan Rathore on October 09 lambasted at Congress-led Rajasthan government by saying that nobody is safe in Rajasthan today and state government can protect only itself, it can't protect public."Nobody is safe in Rajasthan today- neither women nor children, not even priests. A govt which stays at a five-star hotel for months can protect only itself, it can't protect public. Rajasthan is getting a bad name," Rathore said. "As per the data of National Crime Records Bureau, Rajasthan stands at the first position as far as crimes against women are concerned. I urge Rahul Gandhi, who indulges in political tourism to BJP-ruled states, to pay attention to Rajasthan," he added.
