On Sunday, Union Minister Anurag Thakur while referring to the crimes against women in non-BJP ruled states including Rajasthan and the Manipur horror, said it is the responsibility of the state governments to reduce such atrocities.
“Any atrocities on women is painful whether it is any state. It is the responsibility of the state governments to reduce crime against women,” Thakur had said.

Assembly elections in Rajasthan is scheduled to be held later this year and it is likely that law and order would be one of the major issues of the BJP.
