Bangaluru, October 17: It looks like the season for irresponsible comments are on and they are made by none other than politicians whom we choose as our representative in the Assembly. First the comments were Dadri lyncing, then beef ban and now they are made on rape. This time K S Eshwarappa of Bhartiya Janata Party  made his debut in the race by commenting on a journalist, what might she do if being abducted and raped!

The issue was gained momentum when a female journalist went to ask Eshwarappa on his views on the Saturday’s double minor rape in New Delhi. Without thinking much, Eshwarappa commented, “You are here, if someone takes you, rapes you then what can opposition do?” Soon after the irresponsible comment, the politician was slammed for his behaviour. Even the Karnataka chief minister K Siddaramiah said to the point that he don’t expect any sensibility from the opposition leader. Siddaramaiah said, “When has KS Eshwarappa ever made a sensible statement?” (ALSO READ: Delhi gang-rape: Arvind Kejriwal blames Narendra Modi, LG for rising crimes against women) Also Read - BJP Calls for 12-Hour Shutdown in Kerala's Alappuzha Today After RSS Worker Killed in Clash with SDPI

Facing criticism from all around, including social activists, Eshwarappa said that he sees women as his sisters and his comments were taken in a negative manner. He also asked that just by alleging him for his comments that state government can not run away from thier responsibiliuties and are answerable to the people who voted them to power. Eshwarappa said. “I see Karnataka women as my sisters. We ask the State Govt what they are doing.” The BJP too supported its leader and said that the news was an attempt to create confusion. However, as the comment was made in public and to a female media person, a media delegation is to meet Siddaramaiah on Saturday over BJP’s KS Eshwarappa’s statement on rape cases.
