Banda, Jan 20: Someone who said that a woman is a woman's biggest enemy was definitely speaking the truth. For all the ills that a woman have had to face, a woman's contribution to her woes can easily be termed the most deadly.

The fact has been proved when the rapist UP MLA Purshottam Naresh Dwiwedi's wife, Asha came out with a statement in defence of her husband. She looked as though she did not have any idea on the impact her statements made let alone have a faint idea of understanding what she intended to say.

She claimed that her husband was physically unable to commit the crime and that he was 55 years old and is a chronic patient of blood pressure and diabetes. She reiterated that there is no way her husband could have carried out this crime.

In her statement she said, "My husband is a patient of sugar and blood pressure for the last 18 years and his left kidney is also not working. With existing physical condition he cannot rape and being his wife I can say this with certainty."

She also added that a DNA and medical test be conducted to prove his innocence. She also accused political parties of using her husband in a political controversy. She also asked for a CB-CID probe into the case.

She also said that the theft charges against the underage Dalit girl was true. Asha also claimed that the girl was arrested in the presence of 500 people and the stolen mobile was recovered from her possession. Asha went a step further when she added, "After her arrest, when police took statement of the girl in Banda jail, she didn't said anything about my husband. In fact she levelled allegations against her own father."

Asha in her well-worded rhetoric said, "Persons, whose names were taken by the girl, have no association with us neither they ever visited our house. I request Behenji (Mayawati) to order a CB-CID probe against those conspiring against my husband and family and take stern action against them."

"If justice is not done to my family, I will not be able to bear the stigma and will commit suicide," Asha thretened.
