Rahul thanks PM for breaking his silence on rape incidents

"Modi ji's silence is unacceptable", Rahul Gandhi said during his candlelight protest at the India Gate in New Delhi last night. Earlier on Thursday, in an attempt to pressure the Centre to take action in the gang-rape cases of the minors in Kathua and Unnao, Rahul led a midnight march to the India Gate in Delhi.

In Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua, an eight-year-old girl was repeatedly gangraped and later murdered while in Uttar Pradesh's Unnao a teenager has accused a BJP MLA of raping her and the UP government of inaction on her complaint. "The BJP and RSS have an "anti-Dalit" mindset as their government has abolished the sub-plan for SC/STs, talked of ending reservation and amendment to the Constitution which was framed by Ambedkar", she said. He said there were repeated incidents of violence, rape and murder of women in the country.

BJP and NDA are focusing on political mind games, as exhibited in the running of parliament in a totally insensitive manner and road-rolling their personal political agenda ' says Rahul Gandhi.

Poirier appeared willing to fight on despite the effect it had on his vision and argued with the cageside doctor and referee to continue.

Hundreds of people, predominantly Congress workers, had joined the march, responding to Mr Gandhi's call to join him for "a silent, peaceful, candlelight vigil" to protest violence against women and demand justice. Thousands are present here including the common people and people from all parties. Rahul Gandhi¿s sister and brother-in-law Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and Robert Vadra, respectively, have also joined the protest with another prominent leader like Ambika Soni, Shobha Ojha, Ajay Maken and others.

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. He said Modi's slogan of "Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao" was a correct slogan. Two of the BJP ministers who supported the accused in the Kathua rape case too have resigned from their posts on Friday.

Kuldeep Singh Sengar, the MLA accused of rape, has been detained by the Central Bureau of Investigation, which was handed the probe into the case by the UP government this week.
