Congress leader Ponnam Prabhakar slams Centre over women’s safety issue

Hyderabad, Aug 19 (ANI): Congress leader Ponnam Prabhakar slammed the Central Government for failing to protect women. He said, "Nirbhaya incident in Delhi shook the nation and new laws came after that. But under the Modi Government, such incidents of rape happen regularly in Delhi, Uttar Pradesh. A woman was beaten in Andhra Pradesh. Yesterday, a woman was gang raped in Sannath Nagar. Nirbhaya act has not been implemented properly; there is no safety for women. Beti Bachao Beti Padhao is all talk. The government has failed to protect women." He also requested the Centre and the Telangana Government to take strict action against the ones involved in Hyderabad gang-rape case.
