Mulayam Singh stands for gender neutral laws, but will he succeed?
Mulayam is a strange man. He was to become the Prime Minister of India after the exit of Deve Gowda but a fellow Yadav, Lalu Prasad did not let him become the PM and I.K. Gujral became the PM.

Mulayam has irked everybody by his remarks that rape is a mistake but he is the only politician who has stated that he would introduce gender neutral laws making false complaints against rape an offence.

Similarly, he has promised to make dowry laws and domestic violence laws more gender neutral so that false complaints in this regard would be severely dealt with.

But Mulayam has also promised to protect the Muslims and give them various benefits but has miserably failed in this regard. It is during the regime of his Samajwadi party that Muzaffarnagar and other riots have taken place and nothing much has been done to ensure the security of the people.

He has also promised that he would do a lot for the promotion of Urdu language but nothing concrete has materialized. So, will he be able to ensure gender neutral laws when his party is also restricted to UP and is more or less a regional outfit. It is also not expected to fair well in the elections.

However, he may play the role of a kingmaker if Modi fails to become PM and then of course, he can push through gender neutral laws.
