Congress general secretary Uttar Pradesh East, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, in a scathing attack on the Yogi Aditynath government has said the Supreme Court’s ruling in the Unnao rape case is a “stamp” on the prevailing “jungle raj” in Uttar Pradesh and the state government’s failure.
Grateful to the SC for taking cognisance of the ‘Jungle Raj’ being unleashed in U.P.
Meanwhile, the BJP finally acknowledges having empowered a criminal and takes some action to correct itself and move in the direction of justice for a young woman who has suffered immeasurably. pic.twitter.com/nNNWhW1CKz

The Supreme Court on Thursday issued a slew of instructions in the case, including directing the transfer of all five cases registered in connection with the Unnao rape incident from a court in Uttar Pradesh to a court in national capital.
सुप्रीम कोर्ट का फैसला उप्र में फैले जंगलराज और सरकार की नाकामी पर एक मुहर है।
अब जाकर भाजपा ने माना कि उन्होंने एक अपराधी को संरक्षण दे रखा था और उसे पार्टी से निष्कासित कर अपनी गलती को सुधारने के लिए कम से कम एक कदम उठाया। pic.twitter.com/Zuh4h1W5a4

“The Supreme Court’s decision is a stamp on the prevailing jungle raj in Uttar Pradesh and the state government’s failure,” Priyanka Gandhi said in a tweet in Hindi.
“The BJP has finally acknowledged that it had given protection to a criminal and by expelling him it has taken at least one step to correct its mistake,” she said.
The Central Bureau of Investigation has booked BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and 10 others on the charge of murder in the accident case of the Unnao rape survivor.
