Rahul Gandhi Leads Midnight Candlelight Vigil At India Gate Over Unnao, Kathua Rape Cases

Congress hits out at PM Modi's planned fast says protest is a farce

Breaking his silence on the rape-murder of a minor in Jammu and Kashmir and the rape of another in Uttar Pradesh, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday promised justice and said the incidents that have caused outrage have shamed the country.

The former Union Minister said that the assembly point in every district would be notified to the party workers soon.

Talking about the objective of the march, Rahul Gandhi said, "We are here against crimes being committed against women, against rapes, violence and murder and the government must act on this".

On Thursday night, Gandhi announced a candlelight march at midnight at India Gate. Earlier, on Friday, echoing the voice of the nation, Congress president Rahul Gandhi asked the PM to spoke on the rape cases. His sister Priyanka Gandhi and brother-in-law Robert Vadra also accompanied him in the silent protest. Find us on Facebook too!

Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said they were protesting to awaken the Modi government from its "slumber". "Similar, marches were held across the country (in state capitals and districts)", Maken said. We want that the prime minister should initiate some steps. Wherever we see, woman and children are getting raped and murdered.

Referring to the reported incident of Ambedkar's sculpture locked in an iron cage and a police personnel deputed for its protection in Uttar Pradesh's Badaun, she said, "You have not kept his statue in the cage but his ideologies".

"Like millions of Indians, my heart hurts tonight", Gandhi wrote on Twitter after addressing an estimated 5,000 people at Thursday's midnight vigil. If you can not behave, go home.

The eight-year-old girl, who was kidnapped in January this year, was held captive at a place of worship for almost a week and raped before she was finally killed. The 8-year-old was kidnapped from a forest, force-fed sedatives and starved, as multiple men raped her over a period of days, before she was finally strangled to death.

Jammu has been on tenterhooks since the brutal rape and murder. The incident came to light when she attempted to immolate herself outside Chief Minister Yogi Adityanth's residence in Lucknow. According to police, she had been abducted and raped by an SPO Deepak Khajuria, who was a part of the team sent out to find her when she was missing.
