Uttar Pradesh government that is facing flak over the Hathras gang rape case, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has cited data to defend his government. The Chief Minister cited 2019 NCRB crime data which says that maximum prosecution, as well as conviction in cases of crime against women, is in Uttar Pradesh.
It is also reported that Uttar Pradesh as a state tops the list when it comes to crimes against women. Different political parties are now picking up data that is conducive to them and are backing up their claim through the data.
Politics over Hathras has increased over time, many leaders are now standing up with the victim's family and many are against the BJP government and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for being negligent.
