BJP Mahila Morcha holds Lal Churi Abhiyan against Odisha govt

Bhubaneswar: Hundreds of BJP Mahila Morcha members on Monday took out a massive red bangles rally- the ‘Lal Churi Abhiyan’-protesting against the Odisha government over denial of justice in the 2011 Pipili gang rape and murder case.  

Holding placards, party flags, banners and red bangles, they marched towards Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik’s residence and State Secretariat alleging failure of the government in ensuring justice to the Pipili gang rape and murder victim.

They also alleged that the government has failed to provide security to women in the state.

The members of the Mahila Morcha allegedly hurled bangles at the police personnel, who stopped them on midway.

While the cops tried to prevent the agitators from entering the Secretariat, the BJP women wing members managed to tie bangles at the gate of the State Secretariat.

The police took the BJP women leaders under preventive custody.
