While Narendra Modi came to power riding on promises of good and clean governance, one cabinet colleague who has become an embarrassment for the administration is Nihal Chand. The Lok Sabha MP from Gangapur in Rajasthan has been accused of sexually assaulting the victim, along with 16 others, in 2011. All 17 have been issued a notice by a court in Jaipur.
On Tuesday (June 17), the victim addressed the media and said she would try to meet the prime minister and request him to remove Nihal Chand as a minister and give her justice.
In that light, should Modi remove Nihal Chand till the case against the minister of state for chemicals and fertiliser is over and done with?
Are our authorities callous when it comes to ensuring safety of people?
