PM should assure nation, youth: CPI on Delhi gang-rape

"If the Prime Minister can address the nation on the issue of allowing FDI in retail, why can't he find time to do so when such horrendous crimes against women are taking place," asked CPI National Secretary D Raja.

Observing that the mass protests "reflect the anger of the people" on the issue, he said the Prime Minister "should own up moral responsibility and assure the younger generation that the government would build legal safeguards to counter the menace."

He said the Prime Minister has "neither been seen nor heard on such matters. These are occasions in the history of the nation that the Prime Minister should address the people."

"His silence leads to loss of confidence. The government already suffers from lack of moral authority" on several issues, Raja said.
