Reacting to the police action, Babbar said, “It is shocking that I am not being allowed to reach BHU to meet the injured girls and know their problem. They (policemen) started a bid to stop me from airport.” He said that it is unfortunate that when the entire world had started celebrating Daughter’s Day the girl students of BHU were being brutalized by the men in khaki inside their hostels for no fault.
Babbar asked whether it is the culture of RSS to treat our daughters this way. He alleged that Modi is deliberately trying to create a panic among the opponents. “Anyone trying to protest against the works, decisions and policies of Modi government is either being canned, sent to jail or a CBI probe is being ordered against them.”
