BJP legislator’s bizarre take on UP MLA’s daughter: Will lead to rise in female infanticide, affect poor gender ratio

Days after the daughter of an Uttar Pradesh MLAs video of her seeking police protection from her father made headlines, another BJP leader blamed the media of covering such news to boost their TRPs. Gopal Bhargava, the Leader of Opposition in Madhya Pradesh, said that such stories would hamper the Beti Bachao Beti Padhao campaign going on across the country. Bhargava also said that it would result in a massive rise in female foeticide and would also afftect the poor gender ratio. I believe that such incidents will now lead to unexpected increase in the incidents of female foeticide in the country, and there will be a huge difference in the sex ratio, which we will clearly see in the social survey over the next three years, Bhargava tweeted in Hindi. He also said that, in his personal view, these channels were indulging in anti-national and anti-social activities to boost their TRP. With this act, the countrys Beti Bachao Beti Padhao scheme and national campaign going on for the last decade will go back 50 years, the BJP lawmaker said in one of his tweets. Sakshi Misra, daughter of Rajesh Misra, MLA from Bareilly Sakshi and her husband Ajitesh Kumar had even urged the Allahad High Court to provide them police protection. In a video posted on social media, Sakshi asks her father to let them live peacefully. I have married as per my own wish. I am not wearing this sindoor for fashion, I am really married now.
