Rahul Gandhi weighs in on Asifa case


Earlier in the day, Gandhi had expressed anguish and shock on the brutal rape and murder of an eight-year-old in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua, and attacked the BJP government in Uttar Pradesh for failing to act against its MLA, who is an accused in the Unnao rape case of a 17-year-old girl.

Priyanka Gandhi was heard telling the crowd to respect the cause for which they gathered at the India Gate.

"This is an issue concerning women", he said, adding that people from all parties as well as the common man was at the India Gate. Congress MLA Aradhana Mishra said that seriousness of the yogi government for women could be gauged from the fact that chairperson of the state women's commission is yet to be appointed.

He said there were repeated incidents of violence, rape and murder of women in the country.

"It is a protest to ensure that a government blinded by political power does something about the situation", he said. Raising anti-government slogans, the women brigade broke bangles on the street to show their resentment for the failure of government machinery to control law and order. "PM Modi should begin working towards saving the women of the country", said Rahul.

He tweeted: "How can anyone protect the culprits of such evil?" BJP president Amit Shah joined his party colleagues in Karnataka to protest against the Congress's "disruptions" of Parliament. "Join me in a silent, peaceful, candlelight vigil at India Gate at midnight tonight to protest this violence and demand justice", Rahul Gandhi had tweeted this evening amid nationwide horror over chilling details of the three-month-old crime revealed by a police charge-sheet. Although Rahul Gandhi himself did not mention elections, Congress party acolytes are relishing the prospect that some of the outpouring of support from Thursday night may linger until 2019. Numerous supporters protested for the dismissal of the Narendra Modi government from the Centre. The two-hour-long demonstration ended with the detention of the protestors.

Priyanka Gandhi's husband Robert Vadra, who was also present in the protest march to the India Gate, said the country needs a change where women could feel safe. She also appealed to the crowd to keep calm and march silently.
