Even on serious criminal incidents like rape, BJP and Congress have made a political issue. Chhattisgarh minister Shiva Dahariya compared the gang rape incident in Hathras with the gang-rape in Balrampur in Uttar Pradesh, saying that the incident here is small. He was targeting Raman Singh, former Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh and during this time he made this statement.
Shiva Daharia said, “A big incident happened in Hathras. Why is Raman Singh tweeting on her? A small incident occurred in Balrampur. He is doing nothing except criticizing Chhattisgarh. “After the ruckus over the statement, the minister has clarified,” I did not call the incident of rape a minor incident. Rape is always a big event. I talked about the events that take place after the rape. My thoughts were not on rape.

In a tweet on 2 October, Raman Singh said about the kidnapping and rape of the girl in Balrampur, “Havans with minor in Balrampur, Chhattisgarh, but the Congress government started pressing the case instead of getting justice. If there are condolences between Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi, then this daughter should also come to Chhattisgarh to get justice. Ask for answers from Bhupesh Baghel? When will the daughter of the state get justice?
Raman Singh surrounded Shiv Daharia’s latest statement and tweeted, “See the perverted mindset of Congress Chhattisgarh! The incidence of life with Chhattisgarh’s daughters seems to be small. Tell Rahul Gandhi, are the incidents of rape in Chhattisgarh even smaller for you? Will you remove such a poor thinking minister today or tomorrow? When will there be justice?
