“Media was often demanding reaction of Dr Manmohan Singh on rape issues but are silent on Modi's silence on Budayun Rape,” Digvijay tweeted.

In the last few days, several sexual assault cases have been registered in Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and Meghalaya.

The most heartrending is the Badaun gang-rape case. Two girls were abducted, gang-raped and murdered on May 27 when they went to relieve themselves in a field. Their bodies were later found hanging from a tree.

Under intense criticism over Badaun gang-rape case, UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav said that a Google search would show such crimes occurring across the country.

Venting out his anger on media, Samajwadi Party Supremo Mulayam Singh said "What to do...we are sensitive. We are not insensitive... Strict action is being taken against culprits. You do your work and let us do our work."
