Editorial

Decisive win

The BJP rode on the back of its national leadership in Hindi heartland , while cogrees relied on its regional satraps for its success in Telangana

The editorial is about Election results . BJP won concincingly in Madhya Pradesh , Rajathan and Chhatisgarh while Congress stood victorious in Madhya Pradesh .

All the three states were won by Congress in last elections .

BJP didn’t disclose the CM face but fought elections on Modi face . In Chhatisgarh policies of Bhupesh Baghel was not able to attract tribal population . And in Rajsthan followed the suit .

The only consolation for Congress is Telangana where it defeated BRS . BJP gained even in Telangana . It won 8 seats compared to 1 seat won last time .

lines . The committee has held that criminalisation of adultery will help make marriage a sancrosanct institution .

On other hand opposition voices not to criminaliae adultery .

History of adultery laws :

Earlier adultery was a crime under section 497 of IPC . Maximum Punishment for husband who had sex with other woman was five year imprisonment . While if a wife does sex with other man she was exempted from prosecution . It was not gender neutral here .

 A five judge  Bench of Supreme Court in 2018 decriminalised adultery . While it observed it to remain a basis of divorce .

 

The problem with adultery laws is said to be two fold one basis of institution of marriage and the other making it gender neutral .
