BJP politicising rape cases, PM didn't mention party men's involvement: Congress

Why Rahul Gandhi wished this newly-married couple

Why Rahul Gandhi wished this newly-married couple

Congress president Rahul Gandhi today hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his silence on violence against women and children, saying it was "unacceptable" and India was waiting for him to speak up.

"I want to assure the country that no culprit will be spared, complete justice will be done". India simply can not continue to treat its women the way it does.

The candlelight protest on Thursday was called at a short notice, but it saw people converging at the India Gate in sizeable numbers to express their support.

Social justice and empowerment minister Arun Chaturvedi has stated that Congress took a jibe at Congress and said that their leader are making false statements and are trying to end the social harmony in the state in which they will not get successful.

Congress Chief Rahul Gandhi led a midnight march to India Gate on April 12 joined by his sister Priyanka and her husband Robert Vadra as also their children, in addition to scores of Congress leaders, party workers and others.

The prime minister recalled one of his independence day speeches in which he had asked parents to question sons and not only the girls.

Surjewala said the BJP-PDP government in Jammu and Kashmir failed to give justice to the minor girl raped in Kathua and the BJP government in Uttar Pradesh did not arrest a party legislator accused of rape of girl in Unnao.

The long-delayed charge sheet in the Kathua case indicates that eight-year-old Asifa was held in a captivity in a temple, raped by six men, and then bludgeoned to death.

In the Unnao case the rape survivor's father has died in police custody while the accused is a BJP MLA. "The Modi government and the BJP are doing politics on every issue, including dalits", said Congress leader Kumari Selja.

"We are here against crimes being committed against women, against rapes, violence and murder and the government must act on this".

A 17-year-old girl was allegedly raped by BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Senger last year in Uttar Pradesh.
