Shinde writes letter to all political parties

Crime against women law

Agencies, New Delhi
Sushil-Kumar-ShindeUnion Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde today said he has shot off missives to all political parties asking them to send their suggestions on the issue of laws pertaining to crimes against women to the Justice Verma Committee so that it is easier to take decisions.

‘’I have written to all the political parties to give their suggestions to the Justice Verma Committee to facilitate the decision making,’’ the Minister told reporters outside the Ministry of Home Affairs here.

He, however, declined to comment on the opposition’s demand for an all-party meeting to discuss the contentious issue.Mr Shinde had earlier on Saturday said the rape laws would be made more stringent. ‘’The Government is committed to seeking deterrent punishment for all the culprits. Government is also committed to make necessary changes in the law to make it more stringent so that such incidents do not recur in future,’’ said Mr Shinde in his condolence message on the demise of the gangrape victim.
Finance Minister P Chidambaram had yesterday dismissed the BJP’s demand to convene a special session of Parliament.
