Historic initiative of the State Government of passing a Bill in the State Assembly to give capital punishment to accused of rape is being welcomed by Bharatiya Janata Party Mahila Morcha in favour of women,” said District President of BJP Mahila Morcha Ashwini Paranjpe, while addressing a press conference on Tuesday.
