Dhanbad/Ranchi: There seems to be many M J Akbars in Jharkhand’s Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) for within a time span of a week,  two of its leaders have been accused of sexually harassing women. Recently, a five times Member of Parliament (MP) and two times Member of Legislative Assembly (MLA) has been accused of sexual harassment. The allegations against the legislator has been made by party’s women wing leader only.

Akbar, the former Union External Minister had to resign from his ministerial post in October when #MeToo had gained momentum in India and several women came forward with their stories of being allegedly sexually harassed by the editor, when they were working under him at The Asian Age.

However, even after resignation, party has is yet to take any exemplary action against Akbar.

Jharkhand BJP’s Akbars

In Jharkhand, the issue came to the public eyes when two cases of sexual harassment was filed at  Katras Police Station, Dhanbad against the two leaders — Baghmara MLA Dhullu Mahto and Giridih MP Ravindra Pandey.

However, the two FIR is yet to lodged into a full-fledged case against the two BJP leaders. But Katras police station in-charge Sanjay Kumar has claimed that police inquiry has been initiated.

Amid all, on Monday Kamala Devi, BJP’s women wing leader from Dhanbad, again stated that she would commit suicide with her entire family, if no action will be taken against Dhullu Mahto, the MLA accused of sexually harassing her. Kamala further alleged that Baghmara MLA has threatened to kill her, ruin her business and even harm her son.

BJP women wing leader’s suicide attempt

Kamala’s case came into the media notice, when she had tried to self-immolate herself at Katras police station following which she revealed before media that she had been sexually harassed by Baghmara MLA, but the police is not taking any action on her complaint.

Soon after her allegation, Mahto had counter alleged that she was doing it on the behest of Giridih MP Ravindra Pandey,  an allegation which Pandey had denied.

Finally, on Monday, BJP’s Jharkhand unit show-caused both the leaders. However, political observers believe that while both the leaders are facing serious charges of sexual harassment, the show-cause notice by the party is too late and too mild an action.

Watch Kamala Devi’s video below, in which she is clearly saying now there is threat to her and her son’s lives:
