On Point with Nupur Sharma : Rajeev Chandrashekhar talks about the Kathua rape, Karnataka elections and more

We are ready with the third episode of ‘On Point with Nupur Sharma’ and this time we have another special guest in form of Rajya Sabha MP and Bangalore based entrepreneur Rajeev Chandrasekhar. Mr Chandrasekhar was earlier an independent MP but earlier this year he joined BJP and was re-elected to Rajya Sabha from Karnataka.

The interview was conducted by Nupur Sharma and Rahul Roushan.

Mr Chandrasekhar talked about the rape and murder of the 8-year-old girl in Kathua in Jammu & Kashmir at length and expressed his utter dismay over the crime. With a belief that the perpetrators would be prosecuted soon, he also lamented that the entire episode has now become a political and ideological battle when all focus should have been on the safety of children.

The Rajya Sabha MP recounted his various attempts at getting favourable laws and systems in place that can protect our children better and reiterated that instead of fighting over a religious or political angle in the Kathua rape case, the focus should be on creating a safer future for our children everywhere.

He said that the union government or the parliament can do only so much and the bulk of the responsibilities lie with the respective state governments so far as the safety of children is concerned. He especially criticized the Karnataka government for being totally careless and clueless about the safety of children. He said he was amused that Rahul Gandhi was putting a midnight candle march but failing to direct his own government in Karnataka to take the relevant steps for child safety.

Mr Chandrasekhar also talked about the upcoming Karnataka assembly elections. He expressed confidence that BJP will do well because the situation in Karnataka for Congress is currently similar to what the situation the party had at centre in 2014. Though he conceded that Congress has now an added advantage of being loud and active on the social media – an aspect they were weak at in 2014.

The BJP leader also talked about how this new resurgence of Congress could be due to Cambridge Analytica and how the party’s recent divisive politics could also be aligned to the same. He castigated the Congress party for playing a dangerous game and implicated Rahul Gandhi into it, accusing him of leading the whole charade.
