Lucknow, April 1: April 1, which is widely known as April Fools Day, is turning out to be a day of shocking sexist comments from the Indian politicians.

After a sexist comment from Goa Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar, then a racist comment from BJP MP and MoS Giriraj Singh, an MLA from the Samajwadi Party has also joined the brigade of politicians, who are talking nonsense about women.

Now, SP MLA blames women for rapes

Shiv Charan Prajapati, an SP MLA from Hamirpur was on Wednesday, April 1, addressing a rally, when he blamed women for rapes.

However, the trend of blaming women for rapes is not new for Samajwadi Party leaders.

In the past, SP Supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav and other veteran leaders of his party have publicly made such disgraced and sexist comments against women.

In April 2014, Mulayam had courted controversy when he was addressing a gathering, “Ladkon se aisi galtiyan ho jaati hain to iska ye matlab nahin ki phaansi de di jaye (Boys do make such mistakes but that does not mean that they should be sent to the gallows).”

Death penalty for rape is unfair…will change rape laws when we come to power,” he had said. [Mulayam Singh Yadav not sorry for controversial rape remark]

On Wednesday, Goa Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar allegedly advised the agitating nurses that they should not stage hunger strike in the sun as ‘it will make them dark’.
