Kuldeep Sengar's daughter seeks justice for her mother in video message
Lucknow, Apr 15: In a recent development, the daughter of jailed former BJP MLA Kuldeep Sengar, has put out a video statement, questioning the 'injustice' done to her mother Sangeeta Sengar.
The daughter has not given out her name. "In any case, the name does not matter - what matters is that my surname is Sengar," Kuldeep Sengar's daughter said.
Earlier, her mother, Sangeeta Sengar was given a BJP ticket for the panchayat elections in Unnao, but the same was later withdrawn after the media raised questions on the same.
In a video statement, Sengar's daughter said, "My mother has been in active politics for the past 15 years. She has contested and won the panchayat elections and was chairman of the zila panchayat. She has been known for her honesty and integrity but now her competence has been set aside. Women may be given reservation but why is it that they are known for what their father or husband has done. We have suffered injustice all through and if I keep quiet again now, I will not be able to answer my conscience."
It can be seen that Kuldeep Sengar is in Tihar jail after being convicted for the rape of a minor.
His family wields considerable influence in Unnao and also enjoys the sympathy of his community that believes the former MLA was falsely implicated in the case.
Kuldeep Senger, sentenced to life in jail, was disqualified as a member of the Uttar Pradesh legislative assembly last year in February.
