An unimaginable brutality: Rahul Gandhi

Attacking the PM, Rahul tweeted, "Dear Prime Minister, Thank you for breaking your long silence". Congress President Rahul Gandhi sent a strong message by taking out a candlelight march at India Gate around midnight where he was joined by his sister Priyanka Gandhi and a large number of people from all walks of life. But certain sections of the party privately wondered the political rationale behind Gandhi's midnight vigil when the rest of the country was sleeping, thereby, liming its visibility and impact.

In Kathua in Jammu and Kashmir, an eight-year-old girl from a minority nomadic community disappeared near her house on January 10. "The Modi government and the BJP are doing politics on every issue, including dalits", said Congress leader Kumari Selja. "We had said this before as well, that women and children are in danger in your government", Azad was quoted as saying. Thousands of members of a radical Hindu group with links to the ruling party have marched to demand the release of the seven men accused in the case.

The SPG too had a very hard time protecting Rahul Gandhi from the chaotic crowd.

As outrage continued to mount over the Kathua and Unnao rape cases, the Bharatiya Janata Party on Friday came out in defence of its ministers and MLAs in the two states.

"The BJP and RSS have an "anti-Dalit" mindset as their government has abolished the sub-plan for SC/STs, have talked of ending reservation and amending the Constitution which was framed by Dr. Ambedkar", Ms. Selja said. "India is waiting", he said. Amid heightened public anger, the Central Bureau of Investigation arrested MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar on Friday night on the directions of the Allahabad high court. PM had given a slogan "Beti Padhao, Beti Bachao" and it's in his regime that our girls are being raped.

The BJP spokesperson also clarified that her party does not support the act of two BJP Jammu and Kashmir ministers who were seen at a rally supporting the alleged Kathua rapists.
