“The NCRB-2021 reports clearly indicate that getting justice has become a distant dream for the women in the State. The rising crimes against women are matters of concern. A party, which has been in power for 23 years has failed to give justice to mothers and sisters of the State,” said Mahila Morcha state president Smruti Patnaik.
She further hit out at the BJD government and said, “The BJD is taking credit for women empowerment in the State, but in reality, it has failed to protect the women.”
The party will hold a protest against the ‘deteriorating’ law and order condition in the State, she said.
