Haryana: Ankit Sharma, brother of Geetika Sharma, an air hostess who was allegedly driven to suicide by the then Haryana MLA Gopal Goyal Kanda in 2012 disapproved of BJP joining hands with the politician to form government in Haryana.

“Where do we go to find justice, if people like Gopal Kanda are allowed to run constituencies?'' Ankit Sharma asked HT reported.

 

He further questioned the authenticity of the slogan 'Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao' if the responsibility of women was being given to a 'hooligan.'

Ankit Sharma told the TV channels that it is demotivating for a victim's family if the perpetrator of the crime gets to have a stake in the ruling government.

Geetika Sharma, a 23-year-old air hostess for the now-defunct MDLR airlines had committed suicide after Kanda, the then owner had allegedly harassed her with one of his aides.
