Mumbai: The Shiv Sena on Saturday hit out at the Yogi Adityanath government over the Hathras gangrape, saying that "jungle raj" prevails in Uttar Pradesh even as foundation stone for Ram temple has been laid at Ayodhya in the state. The ruling party in Maharashtra alleged that the recent incidents of atrocities against women in Uttar Pradesh have failed to move the government in that state as well as the Centre.

"Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya. But there is no 'Ram rajya' (ideal governance) in Uttar Pradesh. 'Jungle raj' is prevailing in Uttar Pradesh in terms of the law and order situation," the Sena said in an editorial in party mouthpiece 'Saamana'. "Atrocities against women continue to happen and the incidents of rape and murder of young women are on the rise in that state," it said.

"A 19-year-old in Hathras was raped and murdered, which triggered an outrage across the country. In her dying declaration, the victim said that she had been raped. But the Uttar Pradesh government now says that she was not raped. Soon after, an incident of gangrape also took place in Uttar Pradesh's Balrampur," the Sena added.

"But despite all this, neither the rulers in Delhi nor the Yogi Adityanath government were moved. The government itself says that when there was no rape, why is the Opposition crying hoarse. But if the woman was not raped, why did the police cremate her in the dead of the night?" it asked.

"Earlier, when the Uttar Pradesh government led by Akhilesh Yadav withdrew Yogi Adityanath's security cover, the latter had cried in the Parliament. Now he himself is the chief minister, but women in his state are not safe," the party said.

The Uttar Pradesh Police stopped Congress leader Rahul Gandhi from visiting the grieving family in Hathras, it said.

"Gandhi was caught by collar and pushed to the ground. Humiliating a leader of a prominent political party in such a manner is a gangrape of democracy," it said.

"The body of Hathras victim was burnt by the police by pouring petrol on it. In which Hindu tradition does this inhuman act fit?" it asked.

"When two sadhus were lynched in Palghar (in Maharashtra in April this year), we saw the statements of Yogi Adityanath and the BJP blew the conch of Hindutva. But why is it silent now?" the Uddhav Thackeray-led party asked.

It said that BJP spokespersons went to town over TV channel debates in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case. "But the same people are now saying that the Hathras victim was not raped. The victim's dying declaration has no value!" it said.

The Sena said that the country was never so "lifeless and helpless" in the past.
