Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Wednesday said there is no guarantee of the safety of women who complain against BJP leaders in Uttar Pradesh as she lamented the plight of women in a series of tweet with #EnoughIsEnough hashtag.

"Not a single day passes in Uttar Pradesh when BJP government is able to give assurance to women that they are safe and they will get justice if some incident happens to them. #EnoughIsEnough" tweeted Vadra.

Citing a news report of a girl going missing after complaining against BJP leader, she tweeted: "The girl who raised her voice is missing or is made to go missing. What is happening with her nobody knows. How long this will continue? #EnoughIsEnough."

"It seems that this matter is also like Unnao matter. If a woman complains against some BJP leader then there is no guarantee of her safety leave apart the question of her getting justice. #EnoughISEnough," she said in a subsequent tweet.

On the other hand, a group of Supreme Court lawyers filed a petition to the Chief Justice of India to take Suo-moto cognizance of media reports that a law student from SS Law College in Uttar Pradesh's Shahjahanpur has gone missing from her college hostel. Lawyers told that parents of the missing girl had filed a missing complaint with the police earlier, and have blamed college director and BJP leader, Swami Chinmayanand for it.
