Bengaluru: BJP leader and ex- deputy CM  KS Eshwarappa has received much flak and criticism for his statement ,in which he had said that CM Siddaramaiah and Home Minister KJ George would  wake up only if their daughters get raped because they do not consider every individual as their own

 

BJP however  has made it clear that it does not approve of such insensitive statements. The  party president has apologised and the party has distanced itself from the remark of the ex-minister.

 

On the other hand, the ruling Congress party which was on backfoot after a sudden rise in rape cases in IT city got an issue and the party  workers have been protesting outside Eshwarappa's residence after his insensitive statement

This remark comes as Benguluru is still reeling under  a number of  sexual assaults cases taking place involving  school children.
