Mulayam Singh Yadav has done it again. Last April he invited wide-spread criticism when he said ‘boys will be boys’ and that boys ‘make mistakes’ while opposing capital punishment for rape. On Wednesday, the Samajwadi Party chief made some more controversial statements on rape while addressing a gathering where the state government was distributing free e-rickshaws. According to Mr Yadav, even if only one person commits a rape, four others are also named in the complaint when rape by four persons is not ‘practical.’
“One commits rape and then four more are named. Kabhi aisa ho sakta hai kya? Aisa practical hi nahin hai. (Can such a thing happen? It is impractical),” said the SP chief.
His comments sent Twitterati into a tizzy. Let’s read what they tweeted about him:
It's still not too late to organize a sex education for Mulayam Singh Yadav. Or education to shut his mouth!!
