"There is a substantial rise of 38 percent since June last year in gang-rape incidents in Madhya Pradesh, but Sushma is silent on them," alleged Ojha.
    
She said that Swaraj often raises a hue and cry when a crime against women takes place in non-BJP states but keeps mum when it takes place in a BJP-ruled state.
    
Ojha, who arrived in the state capital for the first time after assuming the charge of AIMC president, also slammed Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan for reinstating Cabinet minister Vijay Shah who had allegedly made ‘sexist’ remarks against the CM's wife.
    
"For the sake of power, Chouhan chose to become insensitive even to his wife, which shows they (politicians) can do anything to remain glued to power," Ojha said.
    
She alleged that incidents of crime against women in Madhya Pradesh have reached alarming proportions.
    
On upcoming Assembly elections in the state, Ojha said that a request will be made to party leadership to give ticket to at least one woman candidate per district in the state.
