IMF Chief insists on need for ‘focus on women in India’

She said that what happened is just revolting

With Unnao and Kathua gang rapes becoming an international issue for India, the International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde called out Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Indian authorities for not paying more attention to the women in the country.

It is said that the IMF chief Christine Lagarde on Thursday in Washington described the heinous rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl in Jammu and Kashmir revolting.

She said that what happened is just revolting and added that the Indian authorities including Prime Minister Modi would pay more attention.

That is what’s needed for women of India, she said.

This isn’t the first time that Lagarde has hit out PM Modi on the condition of women in India. When Modi was in Davos to attend the World Economic Forum meet in January, Lagarde had told PM that he didn’t mention the woman of India enough in his speech to the summit.

However, she clarified that this was her personal opinion.

It need be mentioned that Prime Minister Modi had to address this very issue even as he spoke at the historic Central Hall Westminster.

He further said that rape is rape and it shouldn’t be politicized.
