The Congress Wednesday alleged that harassment, rapes andcrimes against women have become a "daily affair" under the BJPgovernment in Uttar Pradesh, and asserted that while people suffer the"jungle raj", the dispensation is unperturbed.

Congress' chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala also allegedthat Dalit and weaker communities are specifically targeted with "law andorder going to the pits!".

Surjewala tagged a media report on a Dalit family being runover by a car for opposing a family member's harassment in Bulandshahr, leavingtwo women dead and tweeted, "Harassment, rapes and crime against womenhave become a daily affair in BJP's Ajay Singh Bisht government."

"People suffer the 'Jungle Raj', UP BJP governmentremains unperturbed!" he added.

On Monday, two women in Bulandshahr district were crushed todeath under the wheels of a car being allegedly driven by a man who theyrebuked for passing lewd comments against a member of their family.

Surjewala had on Sunday slammed the Yogi Adityanath governmentover alleged atrocities against women and girls, alleging that "jungleraj-like eclipse" has been cast over law and order in the state.
