Police case against Roopa Ganguly for controversial remark on rapes in Bengal

Following the incident, a woman lodged a complaint against the MP at Nimta police station in Kolkata. "If they are able to survive there for 15 days without getting raped, then tell me", she said nearly unapologetically, without even realizing that rape isn't something that you can just casually use for political purposes.

"I will tell people of India and politicians, everyone who supports Trinamool Congress including some Congress leaders. send their wives and daughters to Bengal without taking hospitality of Mamata Banerjee, if they are able to survive there for 15 days without getting raped, then tell me", she had said at a programme. "In most of the incidents, the police do not register cases", said Ganguly. The tribals in the area went on a rampage and also demanded arrests in the case.

The BJP, according to news agency ANI, defended Ms Ganguly, saying that rather than focusing on the literal meaning of her statement, importance should be given to the subject matter itself. She said that although the numbers have shown a decline, the incidents continue to be on the rise.

Chattopadhyay, while interacting with media persons, said: "I cannot understand how a lady who was born in West Bengal and had spent so many years in the state can give such an ugly statement".

Responding to Ganguly's criticism, TMC leader and West Bengal power minister Sobhandeb Chattopadhyay came up with a shocking statement, asking the BJP leader to reveal the number of times she had been raped in Bengal before portraying a negative picture about the state. "In fact, I displayed lenience when I talked of "15 days", she said.
