Indore: Madhya Pradesh BJP MLA Akash Vijayvargiya on Monday demanded punishment for the parents of rapists and murderers saying they are responsible for their children’s upbringing. He also asserted that he would like to bring a law on this if given a chance.

While addressing a gathering of school students in Indore, the BJP MLA said, “If a person rapes, then in my opinion, not only should he get punishment, but his parents too for at least one or two years. Similarly, parents of murderers too should get punishment of two-three years along with the convict.”

“It is the parents’ lookout to make their children responsible citizens with good character and culture. If children do something good, the credit goes to the parents. If they do something bad, parents are responsible for it too,” he claimed.

The MLA, however, added it is his personal opinion, though he would like to frame a law on the issue if he got a chance.

A video of the speech has since gone viral on social media. It should be noted that the BJP MLA is the son of BJP national general secretary Kailash Vijavargiya.
