she continued by saying that:
Though it was necessary for people to educate their boys and prevent such crimes, girls should also be “alert and aware”, the MP said, adding that she “really felt sad” for the rape survivor. Kher said people have become more wild these days.
There is lack of transport available in Chandigarh,and auto rickshaws are mostly used as a means of transport.
The Chandigarh Police is doing the investigation.
On Asking her About the women commission, why Chandigarh did not yet have a women’s commission,
Kher reportedly said that there was no need for one as the city already had a woman MP, woman mayor and a woman senior superintendent of police. “I am there…women can come to me,” she said.

But her statement made everyone shocked and outraged. And People started Commenting upon her.
Congress leader Pawan Kumar Bansal said, “I am amazed at how she could give such a statement. It seems like a light take on a serious matter.”
Kher reacted to the above statement by saying:
“The matter should not politicized…Aren’t there girls in your homes? You should also be talking constructive things like I am, instead of making a destructive statement,” she said.
I think the lesson that Kiran Kher want all girls to teach is to protect their own safety. She wants to convey that we need to be more allert, more sensible and protective for ourselves.
But people expressed their own opinion and outraged at the remark.
Kirron Kher is right.
The victim should have bought a BMW and hired 5 armed guards.
Can’t understand why more people don’t do that.
Victims are such gareeb idiots.
They deserve 0 empathy. https://t.co/XdCodB7jU5
