The All India Mahila Congress on Tuesday demand that Prime Minister Narendra Modi must immediately sack Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath "for dereliction of duty" in the case of custodial death of alleged rape victim's father.
It also demanded immediate action against all those who were responsible for the alleged rape and death of the victim's father in police custody.
Stating that 'Beti Bachao Beti Padhao' has turned into a mockery in Uttar Pradesh, AIMC President Sushmita Dev said that its "a disgrace that such acts of violence against women are rampant" in the state.
"The last six months track record of violence against women is enough for the Chief Minister to resign as he as lost all moral and ethical grounds to rule," she said in a statement.
"'Beti Bachao Beti Padhao' has turned into a mockery in the Prime Minister's own state. It is shameful to see that right from the students of Benaras Hindu University to women on the streets are becoming victims of abuse of power by authorities.
