Women activist Trupti Desai expressed anguish over the Hyderabad rape-murder case and asserted that the main problem is the mindset of the people. She also mentioned that Jaya Bachchan being a responsible Member of Parliament should not have said the rapists should be lynched instead should have made statements about introducing new laws. "Jaya Bachchan made a statement but she is a responsible minister. She should have made statements about introducing new law and acting upon cases. Many cases like that of Hyderabad take place, the mindset of the people the problem," said women activist.
