KOZHIKODE:  CPI (M) Polit Bureau member Brinda Karat has said that the party will fight to “ensure justice for victims in sexual assault cases, whosoever the perpetrators are.”

Without mentioning the controversy over the alleged sexual assault complaint against P K Sasi, Shoranur MLA, she said, “there will be no compromise on any case of sexual assault or sexual harassment against anybody within the party, mass organisations, or the government.” She was here on Sunday to address a workers’ convention of the All India Democratic Women's Association.

Karat said the party and the government would stand firmly with the victim to fight for justice for her. She claimed that the state party leadership was acting on the complaint they had received and alleged that “stories were being manufactured in the media to defame the party.” The CPI (M) leader said such reports were aimed at defending those who committed the worst kind of crime against women.

Accusing the BJP of supporting those involved in crimes against women, Karat said that elected representatives of that party had come out in the open against the accused in the Kathua rape case.

She claimed that there had been an increase in the rate of crimes against women after the BJP came to power and there was the “worst rate of conviction too.” Terming the National Democratic Alliance government a “pick-pocket sarkar,” she said the rise in prices of petrol, diesel and LPG products and the subsequent rise in prices of essential commodities was the highest since Independence. One of the biggest challenges facing women now is the fight against the policies being pursued by the BJP and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, she claimed.
