    Dimple Yadav defend Mulayam Singh
    New Delhi, April 21: Days after Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav made the controversial 'rape' remark, his daughter-in-law Dimple Yadav has come out and defended him saying that such remarks are made at times.

    Dimple, wife of UP CM Akhilesh Yadav is contesting the Lok Sabha election from Kannauj, said that such comments are made by a lot of people and 'it happens at time.'

    Yadav at a rally in Moradabad last week said that rape convicts being given capital punishment was wrong. He said: "They are boys , boys make such mistakes. That doesn't mean that you award them capital punishment," he said.

    His comment had spaked a massive outrage among the political class as well as several women welfare groups, who criticised Yadav for his comment. Yadav had then come out and defended himself saying that the SP had done tremendous work for the women in the state.
