Far from the promises of 'RAM Rajjya' by Prime Minister Modi before Uttar Pradesh Assembly Election and subsequent selection of Yogi Adityanath to establish rule of law now turned the opposite – Uttar Pradesh turned a ‘RAVAN Raj’ where a BJP MLA can gang rape a minor Dalit Girl, beat her Uncle, finally killed her distraught father but Yogi Adityanath played blind ‘ Dhritarastra’ toward these heinous crimes.

Unnao's brutal rape of a minor dalit girl by BJP MLA Kuldip Singh Senger, followed by murdering rape-victim's Father who was demanding Justice, multiple letters and cry failed to evoke any timely action from Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.

Its only after national media, Allahabad High Court, Supreme Court stepped in - then only Yogi Adityanath felt the need for ordering SIT (Special Investigation Team) but still didn't order arrest of crimal MLA Kuldip Singh - finally CBI was forced to arrest crimal MLA after Allahabad High Court order on Friday (April 13).

Allahabad High Court ordered arrest of  Kuldip Singh and BJP top brass in a damage control mode ordered CBI investigation. 

Even Twitter savvy Narendra Modi took 4 days to condemn brutal rape of Unnao Dalit victim after her father was murdered by Kuldip Singh's brother Atul Singh aided by Ypgi Adityanath's Police in  in Police custody on April 9.  Not only murder but to cover this heinous crime, from Doctors, Police officers to all Govt officials were actively involved in falsifying documents.

After a  long wait, Prime Minister Narendra Modi broke his silence on the rape-murder of a minor in Jammu and Kashmir and the rape of another in Uttar Pradesh, Congress demanded that he should now take "some serious action", instead of giving "assurances".

Political analysts.Intellectuals across India saying that BJP has an anti-Dalit mindset and just by inaugurating a memorial their ideology and mindset won't change.

"We are very very thankful that the Prime Minister has spoken at least..even if he has done it after three months, after weeks of Unnao, even if he has spoken at the demand and insistence of the opposition parties like us," said Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi."But at least he has spoken. I wish he will now convert his words to deeds. We want him to take some serious action," he added.

"Deeds count, words do not. The mentality of the RSS, BJP, PM and the government is anti-Dalit. Their thought, deed, their thinking process, actions, policies and approach are all anti-Dalit. 

"Mere slogans and jumlas will neither prevent, nor reduce Unnaos and Kathuas. For Dalits you can inaugurate as many memorials as you like, but the fact of the matter is you are reducing sub-plans, financial allaocations, robbing them of their scholarships, you are particiapting in conspiracies to dilute their reservation and then you are shedding crocodile tears in the name of Dalits."

On the Prime Minister saying Congress didn't give Babasaheb Ambedkar due respect and also didn't confer Bharat Ratna on him, Singhvi said: "Any attempt to rewrite, reinvent and erase history will not work."

"Ambedkar was part of Congress movement. He had healthy positive differences of opinion on policy matters. But he was a part of the freedom movement with the Congress. He was a minister in Nehru's cabinet. He was respected person. No one has done more in the name of Babasaheb and the Dalits then Congress has," he said. 

"Do you know about RSS' views on Baba Saheb and the Dalits, their attitude towards reservation. They even made fun of Baba Saheb. Now, they are trying to turn over a new leaf and become crusaders for Dalits."

So, millions of Indians asking Narendra Modi the important question .' Where is RAM Rajjya - the rule of Law, Justice, Strong Governance as promised in India's largest State Uttar Pradesh ?

If a BJP MLA can gang-rape a minor girl over a year, kill her justice-seeking father brutally in police custody - rather than strong actions after multiple complaints by rape-victim to CM Yogi ....then isn't UP Chief Minister equally guilty for shielding a criminal MLA ?

Lawless UP is no different than SP, BSP ruled era but Akhilesh Yadav ort Mayavati - fact is UP turned worst 'RAVAN raj' Under Yogi Adityanath.

Unnao's brutal rape is marked as major fall-out from tall promises by Narendra Modi - needless to say, public anger against BJP's RAVAN raj in UP will be reflected in 2019 Lok Sabha Election - also it explains why BJP already lost 2 MP seats in recently held by-election vacated by nother other CM Yogi (Gorakhpur) and Deputy CM Keshav Prasad Maurya (Phulpur).

Its hightime for Narendra Modi and Amit Shah to analylize Yogi Adityanath's failures, need to weed out criminals from BJP otherwise BJP will bite dust in upcoming Karnataka Assembly and 2019 Lok Sabha Election.
