Congress slams government for not taking stand on decriminalizing gay sex

Wednesday - July 11, 2018 11:32 pm , Category : INDIA
New Delhi July 11 (IANS) With the Narendra Modi government leaving decriminalizing gay sex to Supreme Court s wisdom Congress on Wednesday slammed it for not taking a stand on the issue and claimed it the government believes in "such draconian laws".
"It is extremely unfortunate that after evolving as a society we continue to hold on some draconian law which has no place into these times.
"The fact that government has not taken a stance on the issue and put the onus on the Hon ble Supreme Court goes on to show that Modiji s government continues to believe in such draconian laws " said Congress spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi.
"It has let down a huge section of people who voted for him (Modi) and BJP hoping that they will be able to bring about a change."
The Central government on Wednesday said it was leaving it to the wisdom of the Supreme Court to decide if a law that criminalizes consensual gay sex was constitutionally valid.
