Congress is divisive, anti-development, says BJP

Congress leader Raj Babbar

Congress president Rahul Gandhi is set to hold a candlelight vigil at India Gate in the heart of Delhi at midnight demanding action against the culprits in the Kathua and Unnao rape cases.

A few days back, an eight-year-old girl from Bakharwal nomadic community was drugged, gang-raped, brutalised and murdered allegedly by men who wanted to instil fear and drive the community out of the region.

Amid the growing atrocities against women, especially the Unnao rape case and Kathua rape case, the All India Mahila Congress (AIMC) has chose to observe a "Black Day" on April 17.

"Join me in a silent, peaceful, candlelight vigil at India Gate at midnight tonight to protest this violence and demand justice", he said.

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti said her government would not allow law to be obstructed and ensure justice in the rape-and-murder case.

In an earlier tweet, Rahul Gandhi described the rape and killing of the girl as "unimaginable brutality" that can not go unpunished.

"How can anyone protect the culprits of such evil", he asked, adding that the violence against the child was a crime against humanity."It cannot go unpunished", he said on Twitter.

Jammu has been on tenterhooks since the brutal rape and murder. PM had given a slogan "Beti Padhao, Beti Bachao" & it's in his regime that our girls are being raped. "Wow our Congress leaders, they invited people to join the hunger strike, but they themselves are relishing chhole bhature at a restaurant ... clearly befooling (people)", BJP leader Harish Khurana tweeted with the image of Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken having food along with Arvinder Singh Lovely at a food joint.

In Unnao, the attempted suicide by the rape victim on Sunday and her father's death in custody a day later highlighted the failure of the Yogi Adityanath government in acting against BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, who has been accused by the victim of allegedly raping her previous year. The horrific incident dates back to January 17, when a lifeless body of Asifa Bano was found in Hiranagar area of Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua district. The city's bar association has opposed the action against the accused and alleged that minority Dogras were being targeted.
