UP Elections 2017: Gulabi Gang's Sampat Pal in state's poll fray 16.2.2017 DNA: Money
In the early days, when she had picked up the cudgels (in a literal sense) against domestic abuse in Banda, Sampat Pal says that there were barely 50 women who came forward to be a part of the pink revolution that she had initiated.

Pal will fight the elections this year on a Congress ticket from Banda. She had fought the election as an independent in 2007, and on a Congress ticket in 2012, but she lost out to a candidate from the Samajwadi Party then. "Today, the Gulabi Gang has grown from a handful of 50 women to 4 lakh women. And, if I win, this social movement will gain some legal authority. The power that I have now, will then gain legal sanction," ...

Gulabi Gang, then the Red Brigade, and now the Green Gang. Women vigilantes in Uttar Pradesh are gaining popularity and publicity with their fearless acts but some of them are now attracting criticism too. The latest group is the Green Gang that operates in Kannauj region. This weekend, the Green Gang attracted a great deal of flak when its members publicly beat up a young married woman who was refusing to return to her in-laws’ home because she had been facing harassment there. In full public view, the Green Gang members beat up the girl, pulling her hair and hitting her with sticks in Tirwa area. The police chose to remain a mute spectator. SP Kalanidhi Naithani said that the girls’ parents had sought the help of the Green Gang and both of them have been taking into custody.
