A firebrand politician who recently stood against the atrocities by seeking justice for women, she is not only popular on social media but has her strong existence. Now a BJP leader Chitra Wagh has been making allegations against Forest Minister Sanjay Rathore in the Pooja Chavan suicide case continuously, she cherry-picked only opposition leaders, for political motives ignoring her own party leaders who came under attack.
Messiah of justice got bare when her husband got arrested by ACB, she was hell-bent on proving him right but did not dare to speak for the victim from whom he demanded 4 lakhs. An open inquiry was conducted by the ACB into the assets of Kishor Wagh during his service period from December 1, 2006, to July 5, 2016. Those days BJP was ruling Maharashtra with the alliance of Shiv Sena.
The investigation found embezzlement of more than Rs 1 crore in the custody of Kishor Wagh. His wealth was found to be 90 per cent more than his total income. Chitra who randomly attacked all those leaders of opposition with her kind of social media trials, became submissive all of sudden. She could not handle the pressure.
Well, that was one long story, but the so-called political leader who always stood against injustice this time persisted with her husband by pleading him right. She took press conferences, she met NCP supremo Sharad Pawar, and she was running polls for her husband. In the pressure of this event, Chitra Wagh resigned from the post of Mahila Morcha as state president in the NCP party in January 2021 and joined BJP.
As we all know, BJP is best at safeguards bivouacked politicians once they join their party. Remember the dialogues of veteran BJP politician Nitin Gadkari stating that the “criminals change for good in BJP, and the party always faces criticism for admitting criminals into the party. If criminals enter the party, we lessen their faults and increase their merits… In our party, criminals change for good, in the same way in which Valya, a robber, turned into Valmiki.” Keeping this in mind, Prasad Lad, who was an NCP MLA a few years ago and now a BJP MLA, has played a mediating role in the entire matter.
Unfortunately, Chitra Wagh when she was in opposition never attacked BJP leaders who are accused of rape and molestation. As per the ADR report, 48, 45 MLAs and three MPs have cases of crimes against women. Among various recognized parties, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has the highest number of MPs, MLAs (12) with cases of crime against women followed by Shiv Sena (7) and All India Trinamool Congress (6).
There are many famous examples like Kuldeep Singh Sengar who is no longer associated with the BJP, but his wife is an active member of the party who was supposed to get a ticket to contest elections. Kuldeep Sengar was an elected BJP MLA when he was accused of sexual abuse.
Self-proclaimed religious leader and BJP leader Swami Chinmayanand is accused by a post-graduate student of sexual abuse. The accuser claimed that the BJP leader exploited her physically for over a year. The accuser had released a video in which she accused Chinmayanand of raping and threatening her and her family.
In March 2017, Bhojpal Singh and two of his aides were booked for gang-raping a Dalit woman after promising to get her a BPL card in Madhya Pradesh’s Morena. Former Delhi BJP MLA Vijay Jolly booked for sexual abuse after a woman accused her of drugging and raping her in February 2017.
BJP Corporator Kashimira Anil Bhosale was booked for raping and forcing unnatural sex on a 44-year-old woman in January 2017. BJP leader Venkatesh Maurya was accused of rape by a woman in October 2016. The woman also alleged that Maurya had introduced himself to her as a BJP leader and a member of the National Executive Council of BJP’s SC Morcha in 2010. Another BJP leader Hamid Sardar along with five others were arrested in a case of trafficking and sexual assault of a minor in August 2014.
Nihal Chand, then the Rajasthan MP and a minister in Modi’s cabinet, Chand was accused of sexually assaulting a 20-year-old in June 2014. Pramod Gupta, Former BJP leader and Cooperative Bank Chairman, Gupta was convicted in a rape case of a 5-year-old child. He was sentenced to life imprisonment. The BJP has the highest number of MPs and MLAs facing cases of crime against women, but Madam Chitra Wagh had no problem with those cases because those criminals belong to BJP. When she was in Opposition, I mean in the NCP the same Chitra was silent against all the crime against women, have you ever seen her ranting so much?
You don’t need any guess to understand why she is vocal on selective politicians; anyways the hypocrisy of so-called women’s right leaders is exposed time and again. I don’t advocate any criminal, but I expect politicians should have the guts to call sped a sped irrespective of any politician.
Chitra Wagh, who claims to be a voice of women, should know Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has the greatest number of MPs/MLAs with cases of crimes against women. About 30% of them face very serious charges, like those related to rape and other crimes against women, murder, kidnapping. The BJP has 116 MPs or 39% of its winning candidates with criminal cases. She should start reform by cleaning her own carpet.
