Priyanka gets shoved at Rahul Gandhi's march at India Gate

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

Modi's fast farce, PM should apologise to youth, Dalits: Cong

Rahul was joined by his sister Priyanka and brother-in-law Robert Vadra in the protests.

"We are here against crimes being committed against women, against rapes, violence and murder and the government must act on this".

"This is not a political issue but a national issue".

"This is about our women". This situation is such today that one after another incident of murder, rape and violence is taking place in various parts of the country. "This defies all human values we have grown with as a society", Gandhi said.

Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said they were protesting to awaken the Modi government from its "slumber".

Gandhi and Prime Minister Narendra Modi had been at the receiving end of criticism for remaining silent on the heinous rape and murder case.

"Today, India's women are afraid of coming out in public". In Unnao an underage girl is raped by an elected representative of the BJP and members of his family. The issue concerns women and here we are joined by several parties and women. With the crowds making a rush towards Congress leaders, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra looked a bit miffed with their behaviour.

The police had a hard time controlling the crowd (some of them were even drunk) as many had crossed over the barricades and even broke through them. And if no, will the country ever become safe?

"Like millions of Indians, my heart hurts tonight. India simply can not continue to treat its women the way it does", the Congress chief said in a tweet.

"Be it the case of a teenage victim in UP's Unnao or the story of Asifa, the eight-year-old girl in Kathua who was gang raped for seven days and then killed, the BJP has failed to provide the common minimum need of safety to women across the country".

Condemning the rape incidents, a few hours ago Rahul Gandhi wrote on his Twitter account, "How can anyone protect the culprits of such evil?"

"What happened in Kathua is beyond humanity, an 8 year old innocent was kidnapped, brutally raped by many men, including a juvenile and tortured till she died". It can not go unpunished. A week later, her body was found in the same area. Eight people have been held by the cops, including two Special Police Officers (SPOs) and a head constable, who was charged with destroying evidence. The city's bar association has opposed the action against the accused and alleged that minority Dogras were being targeted.
