The Congress leader was responding to Prime Minister Modi's speech made earlier on Friday where he had promised that the culprits of the rape cases in Kathua and Unnao will not be spared and justice shall be delivered. He attributed his own success to the chief framer of the Constitution.

"I want to tell parents that their sons and daughters have chosen a path".

Also on the cards is the launch of an Ayurvedic Centre of Excellence at the University of Westminster, for which an MoU will be signed between the All India Institute of Ayurveda and College of Medicine, an MoU between NASSCOM and Innovate UK, and another MoU between NITI Aayog and its counterpart in the UK in the area of innovation.

The government aims to develop these centres by 2022.

Before addressing the gathering, Modi presented a pair of slippers to a tribal woman - one of the beneficiaries of "Charan Paduka" scheme. "The government is committed to protect your rights", he said. "Why you have given your children's lives in their hands". From Sweden Modi will depart to the United Kingdom on April 17 at night, for the next day to meet with Prime Minister Theresa May. He mentioned the Ayushman Bharat and Gram Swaraj programmes, saying these will empower the weaker sections.

Prime minister, these two incidents are not just ordinary crimes where, with the passage of time, the wounds inflicted on our social fabric, on our body politic and the moral fibre of our society will heal and it will soon be business as usual.

"Ambedkar had a huge contribution in awakening the aspirations and expectations of millions of people like me". "I have come here to say that the Centre supports your dreams, aspirations and expectations".
