Since Yogi Adityanath-led BJP government came to power in Uttar Pradesh, the state has witnessed a sharp rise in crimes against women.

According to the reply, there has been 99 percent increase in cases related to harassment whereas, 40 percent rise in cases of assault for outraging modesty was also recorded.

In comparison to April 2016-January 2017, 26 percent more cases of rapes was reported in between April 2017-January 2018.

Overall, crimes against women have gone up by 33 percent under the BJP government.

A twitter user shared in detail the increase in crimes against women.

He tweeted, “After Adityanath led BJP govt came into power in Uttar Pradesh, as per UP govt’s own data, Rape increased by 26%, assault on women by 40%, kidnapping of women by 35% and harassment of women by 99%. But For BJP, it is “Yogi’s Ram Rajya”!!”
