Karnataka BJP MLA Renukacharya stirred up a fresh controversy amid the ongoing hijab row in Karnataka. He said that rapes are increasing because of women’s clothes.

He made the comment while referring to Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi’s ‘bikini’ tweet, wherein she said: “Whether it is a bikini, a ghoonghat, a pair of jeans or a hijab, it is a woman’s right to decide what she wants to wear.”
