भाजपा के नारों को देश की जनता अब यूँ कहती है…
मेक इन इंडिया-रेप इन इंडिया
बेटी पढ़ाओ,बेटी बचाओ- बेटी छिपाओ,बलात्कारियो से बचाओ…
देश बदल रहा है-बेटियों के साथ रोज़ रेप हो रहा है…
स्टार्ट अप इंडिया-रोज़ ब्रेक हो रही बहन-बेटियाँ
अबकी बार -नारी की इज्जत रोज़ हो रही तार-तार

In a recent instance, the BJP is under the cloud over Unnao Rape Case as MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar was arrested by CBI for allegedly raping a 17-year-old girl. He was produced before a Lucknow court where he pleaded innocence.
The alleged rape case came into the limelight after the victim tried to set herself on blaze outside Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s residence last week after alleging police inaction against the politician.
