At the same time, the main opposition BJP in the state targeted the state government over this report, saying that it shows the failure of the Congress government in tackling the crime. The Chairperson of the Women’s Commission defended saying that many cases have been found to be fake.

Social activists also expressed concern over the rise in crime against women and cited the use of social media and internet as one of the factors behind the rise in crime. BJP state president Satish Poonia told PTI that, “The deteriorating law and order situation and increase in crime is the biggest failure of the Congress government. The image of Rajasthan has been tarnished by the crimes. Women safety is an important issue in the state as the government has failed to ensure the safety of women.” He said that 6337 rape cases as per the NCRB report clearly show that the law and order situation in the state is poor.

Deputy Leader of Opposition Rajendra Rathod said there is no full-time home minister in the state and the result is an increase in crimes. It is noteworthy that the Home Ministry is with Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot. Rajasthan State Commission for Women Chairperson Rehana Riyaz Chishti said that the increase in cases is worrying, but during investigation many cases are found to be fake. Women’s rights activist Nisha Sidhu said that along with the traditional reasons behind the rise in rape cases, there is also the ‘unrestricted use’ of social media and internet due to which cases like rape, molestation are increasing.
