Anisur Rehman sought public apology soon after these comments, but what exactly is he apologising for? For exposing how his mind works?
While mocking the rape victim compensation policy at the open session of the CPM’s peasant wing Pradeshik Krishak Sabha, held at Itahar on December 25, Rehman said: “I would like to ask didimoni (Mamata) what her fee will be if someone gets Rs 20,000 after being raped.” The former minister doesn’t even know that the chief minister is only implementing section 357A of the amended Criminal Procedure Code that provides for such compensation.
Just how disgusting can they get?
Rehman reminded the gathering at Itahar how Mamata Banerjee showcased Champala Sardar of South 24-Parganas as a “rape victim.” “She (Mamata) is in the habit of picking up women on her way and claim that they have been raped. We used to make fun of it. I told her that all and sundry won’t serve her purpose. She has to look for good women. No one can be better than you (Mamata),” the CPM leader said.
And Trinamool Congress MP Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar made this comment while reacting to the above comment.
“If you’re referring to the Park Street rape, see that is a different case altogether. That was not at all a rape case. It was a misunderstanding between the two parties involved between a lady and her client. This was not a rape,”. [TMC leader denies Park Street rape, says victim was sex worker]
