BJP’s Rajasthan chief and leader of opposition in the state, Rajendra Rathore targeted Ashok Gehlot’s government on the incident and said that the incident is also a question mark on the poor law and order system of the state.
“Atrocities against women and daughters are at their peak under the jungle raj of Congress. The incident of suicide by two schoolgirls troubled by teasing in Pipalkhunt of Pratapgarh district is shameful to humanity. This incident is also a question mark on the poor law and order system of the state. This is not the first case under the rule of @ashokgehlot51 ji who has failed as the head of the Home Department,” Rajendra Rathore said on X.
