National outrage over Kathua and Unnao rape cases forces BJP's hand

BJP members beat up police with broom

Speaking at an event commemorating Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar's birth anniversary at the state Congress office in Jaipur, Pilot said BJP is misusing Dr Ambedkar's name for political gains.

The BJP was left red-faced after two of its legislators were caught snacking in the midst of a fast in Maharashtra.

The Congress and BJP locked horns and attempted mar each other's image with regard to the gang-rape of an 8-year-old girl in Kathua district of Jammu and Kashmir and another 17-year-old girl in Unnao in Uttar Pradesh allegedly by a ruling BJP MLA and his henchmen.

The Delhi Congress took out candle marches across the city tonight to protest the Kathua and Unnao minor rape cases and slammed the BJP for the alleged rise in crimes against the women across the country. Why are accused rapists and murderers protected by the state?

He also criticised the UP government for not arresting accused BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and asked whether it was true that the lawmaker would have not been taken into custody had the Allahabad High Court not used harsh words.

Talking to reporters, Prasad said that while the entire fast by Congress was a farce engineered by party President Rahul Gandhi, today's fast by the BJP, in contrast, was to protest over the shameful acts of the Congress and its allies who have denied the government the opportunity to talk about various issues being faced by the nation for almost a month now.

Amid worldwide outrage over the rape and murder of a minor girl in Kathua district of Indian Occupied Kashmir, Chauhan has given a freakish theory, saying enemy agents are involved in stirring unrest in the contested valley.

Some Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) fanatics may argue that Modi ji is the Prime Minister of India and he is not bound to speak on issues like these.

He said she has chosen to look at incidents such as the Kathua and Unnao cases through the "prism of religion". Also, J&K Minister from BJP quota Lal Singh was in Congress.

"This proves what kind of dirty politics is being played in Jammu and Kashmir", she said.
