BJP MP Ravi Kishan Raises Payal Ghosh Sexual Exploitation Issue
Actor-turned-politician BJP MP Ravi Kishan stood in support of actress Payal Ghosh and demanded a stricter law against sexual abuse of women.
BJP MP and Bhojpuri superstar Ravi Kishan raised the issue of sexual exploitation of ‘daughters of the country’ in the Lok Sabha. He demanded strict action on filmmaker Anurag Kashyap without directly naming him. The actor used the slogan ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’ and claimed that it has empowered women to come forward and speak about the wrongs done to them. Ravi Kishan stated that the government should look into putting an end to the exploitation of girls and women, especially in the film industry. He demanded that strict laws be made to save daughters of the country which will instill fear in people.
Ravi Kishan further stated that he is also a father and wants daughters of his country to stay safe in whichever field they try to make their name. Earlier on Sunday (September 20), he also tweeted that he will be raising this issue in the Lok Sabha. He tweeted in Hindi, “I will raise the incident that happened with Payal Ghosh in Parliament so that the exploitation of struggling girls ends in the film industry forever.” On Saturday evening (September 19), actress Payal Ghosh accused Anurag Kashyap of sexual harassment.
