The government is busy protecting cows not women, said Samajwadi Party MP Jaya Bachchan in Rajya Sabha on Wednesday.

Bachchan’s remark came after protests by Trinamool Congress MPs who raised the issue of a BJP youth leader announcing a Rs 11 lakh reward for anyone who beheads West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee.

“Must take steps for protection of women aggressively. You are protecting cows but atrocities being committed on women,” said Bachchan.
Instances of vigilantism have grown with so-called gau rakshaks accused of violence and even murder.
