Rahul Gandhi weighs in on Asifa case

Share

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 parents of Jyoti Singh, known as Nirbhaya, who died after being brutally gangraped in the national capital in 2012 were also present for the demonstration. Rahul said that he was joined by members of several other parties and common men and women in the midnight protests.

Talking to ANI, Leader of the Opposition Azad said "The government is sleeping and so at this time Congress will have to wake them up".

Jammu has been on tenterhooks since the brutal rape and murder.

"It is a protest to ensure that a government blinded by political power does something about the situation", he said.

"I only want to say that the atrocities being committed against women, the government should something about it".

"Today, India's women are afraid of coming out in public".

Rahul tweeted, "Like millions of Indians my heart hurts tonight".

Meanwhile, reports claim that Rahul Gandhi will lead a midnight vigil at #India Gate for Asifa. "We are saying that Narendra Modi should begin the task of protecting women of the country", he said.

"Our message to those who are allowing the Unnao and Kathua rape horrors to happen is this - don't try to divide our country on religious lines because that is the work of evil and such people will be shown the door when elections come", Congress spokesperson Rajiv Tyagi told Firstpost. Prime Minister had given a slogan "Beti Padhao, Beti Bachao" (Save the Daughter, Teach the Daughter) and it is during his regime that our girls are being raped.

Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said they were protesting to awaken the Modi government from its "slumber". The two-hour-long demonstration ended with the detention of the protestors.

"Yogi Adityanath should be immediately removed from UP for failing to protect the women in the state, which was the main promise of BJP during the 2017 Assembly polls", she demanded, wondering how a rapist BJP MLA was continuing in the party. With the crowds making a rush towards Congress leaders, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra looked a bit miffed with their behaviour.
