Speaking at an event recently, SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav said that “some rape cases are blown out of proportion.”

Citing the example of Badaun rape case, where the victim has named four of her brothers and has accused them for raping her, Yadav said “it’s impractical” and the victim named the four brothers for “settling scores.”

“Innocents must not be implicated and harassed. There are cases, where a victim has accused four brothers of raping her. It is not practical,” he was quoted as saying.

“The CBI probed the case and found out that rape was not committed at all. They were cold-blooded murders by the victim’s cousins for property,” Mulayam said.

Yadav further pointed towards an ongoing campaign to malign SP’s image. “.. even senior leaders like Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s son Rahul rushed to Badaun and attacked the state government at the law and order front,” he said. In the same breath, he also criticized his own party’s MLAs for not being able to tackle the alleged defamatory attempts, “Our own MLAs said they were helpless as the media was running a campaign. I will see to it how such MLAs get a ticket this time.”

At the same event, Mulayam Singh Yadav also insisted that UP had the lowest percentage of rapes. “Here the rate of rape cases is only 2% while in Madhya Pradesh it is 9 and in Rajasthan it is 7. In Delhi the situation is worse,” he said.

This year’s theme was “what inspires you”. The doodle, incorporating letters G-o-o-g-l-e, were to be created using crayons, clay, water colours and graphic design.

From a beautiful sight at the beach to nature’s tiny creatures; India’s farmer community to the Indian folk music; space exploration to learning from animals; children drew their inspiration using crayons, clay and graphic designs, the tech giant said in a statement.
