Rohtak (Har): BJP leader Smriti Irani on Wednesday alleged women were feeling insecure in Haryana due to sharp rise in crime against them during the past seven years of the Congress rule.

"There has been a sharp rise in crime against women during the past seven years in Haryana," she told a function organised by the BJP women's wing here.

The actor-turned politician alleged Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda was turning a blind eye towards the issue of women security.

Accusing the Congress government in the state of not taking adequate steps for security of women, she said "women and girls are being teased, robbed, raped, abducted and murdered in broad daylight" in Haryana.

"What could be worse than the fact that teenage girls and women were subjected to sexual exploitation at Apna Ghar shelter home in Hooda’s home town (Rohtak)," Smriti said.

Referring to recent incident of rape in a Sonepat varsity, she said "girl students are also not safe in their educational institutes."

The Hooda government had failed to curb rampant graft, rising crime graph and atrocities on women in the state and, therefore, had no moral right to remain in power, the BJP leader said.
