Loksatta Party Sternly Condemns the GoI For Not Criminalizing Marital Rape

Loksatta Party sternly condemns the GoI for not criminalizing marital rape. In the name of Indian culture, the sitting BJP government at the center is blatantly abdicating their responsibility to ensure basic human rights and constitutionally enshrined fundamental rights of women. Instead the GoI is audaciously citing Indian culture for their rejection of basic governmental duties.

Rape or non consensual sex is by definition an act of violence. To claim that Indian culture treats marriage as sacred and therefore espouses violence and forced sex within marriage is both a contradiction and travesty, not to mention denigrating of India.

Loksatta Party National President Surendra Srivastava lambasted the GoI for misrepresenting Indian culture to suit their atavistic gender related attitudes. "The beauty of Indian culture is its ability to hold a mirror to itself and reflect on it's own anachronisms. It is to live and let live. That has led to repealing of many unfair laws and creation of other laws to protect and engender social good. Rape, in any circumstance is abhorrent and by tolerating marital rape, India daily acknowledges that women are lesser humans without right of their bodies and no recourse for pain and violence. As a lawyer and a human being, I find this stance of the GoI unacceptable."

Tara K, National Chairperson of Strategy for Loksatta Party, commented, "We are glad that the sitting governments of yesteryears did not preclude the abolishing of dowry and passing of anti Dowry and anti bride burning laws, the banning of child marriages and the passing of the prohibition of child marriage laws and the eradication of widow burning, all in the name of tradition, culture, education and background of the Indian people. Had they appropriated to themselves the sole custodianship of Indian culture the way the current GoI is acting, these barbaric practices would never have been outlawed."

Loksatta Party, as a relentless champion for women, strongly urges the GoI to criminalize marital rape. India must treat women as first class citizens. accord them dignity of life and a marital institution that is safe and happy.

Loksatta party demands to leave NTR ground as play ground and find alternate location for Telangana Kala Bhavan

Loksatta party Hyderabad (GHMC) has been fighting on behalf of thousands of youth and senior citizens, walker associations groups and women’s groups that use NTR grounds on daily basis and requesting the Government to find alternate location in Hyderabad for Telangana Kala Bhavan.

Loksatta Party founder Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan visited the ground early Sunday morning to meet with local residents and youth and express his resolve to preserve the much valued lung space in the heart of the city. During his interaction with youth Dr. JP was surprised to find that many of the children come from far away places like Attapur and Uppal, Amberpet beyond local areas of Himayatnagar, Gandhinagar, Ashok Nagar, Musheerabad etc.

“Youth traveling long distances to come here indicates the lack of play grounds in the city. Instead of increasing such open spaces, the current government is attempting to do the contrary! We heartily welcome the construction of Telangana Kala Bhavan, but Government must find alternate location. Ravindra Bharathi, Laliha Kala Thoranam, Harihara Kala Bhavan and other existing public auditoriums are not put to good use. Government should evaluate all options available.

Young people of our city deserve open spaces for play. Rapid urbanization gave us lifestyle health issues and open spaces help people relax, exercise and build physical strength. If we take away the few open spaces left, we are forcing our people to watch TV indoors instead of playing cricket.

Not only should the NTR ground be left alone, I strongly urge the Government to find open spaces for youth in all divisions of GHMC for play and recreation so they do not need to travel long distance to play.

I urge the Telangana Government to reconsider their decision. Let us identify alternate location for the construction of Telangana Kala Bhavan” Dr. JP said speaking to media persons at the grounds.

Loksatta Party Telangana unit President Bandaru Ramamohana Rao also spoke at the venue. Loksatta Hyderabad President Dosapaty Ramu said that the party will continue to mobilize public opinion and fight to change the decision made by the Government and find alternate location for proposed Kala Bhavan.

Many youngsters playing cricket, walkers, women, discussed the issue with Dr. JP and requested Loksatta party’s support and leadership to help save the ground.

LSP backs net neutrality, rejects move for preferential treatment to ‘partner’ sites

Clearly and openly backing the concept of ‘net neutrality’, the Loksatta Party said on Friday that the role of internet service providers should only be to provide access to data irrespective of the source.

Weighing in on the raging debate sparked by the demand by some telecom giants to be allowed to charge for internet access based on usage, Pallav Pradyumn Narang of the LSP’s Delhi unit said such an approach would impinge upon the freedom of speech and expression of users.

Opposing the plan of some ISPs to tie up with internet companies to provide preferential access to their sites and services, Narang said such a move, too, would impinge upon freedom of speech and expression, not to mention the fact that it would be detrimental to one and all.

The role of the internet in advancing human learning and capacity has been beyond expectation, he said. The Net has allowed an unprecedented interchange of information across borders, opening our eyes to the world at large, helping to create and foster communities, and enriching our lives. A United Nations report had gone so far as to declare unrestricted access to the internet a human right.

Any move, under any pretext, to provide preferential access, based upon business deals, to one stream of data over another would sound the death-knell of freedom of information as we know it today, he said.
