The LGP president said the way the BJP leadership tried to defend the main rape accused in Unnao case has amply demonstrated that the party is no different from its predecessor Samajwadi Party regime. Her family alleged that she was raped by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and his accomplice past year, and no action was taken against the accused. "If this is the conduct of the police in the state, whom will a victim approach to register a complaint?"

Previously the victim's father died in judicial custody nearly a week after he was reportedly thrashed by the MLA's brother and others.

He was quoted saying by ANI: "Father of Unnao victim has died, the girl is threatening to immolate herself".

On April 8, a girl from Unnao alleged that she was raped by BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and his accomplices in June, last year. The 2nd is in rioting, in which 4 people have been taken into custody.
