Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav on Thursday questioned the death penalty for rape and said that they would change the law if they come to power.
In a shocking statement, Mulayam said: “Sometimes boys make such mistakes, should they be hanged? It’s not right to give death penalty for committing rape.”
Addressing a rally in Moradabad, the former UP chief minister said, “if the SP forms government, they will change the law of giving death sentence to the rape accused”
Mulayam triggered yet another controversy with his rape remarks.
