Kathua rape: Rahul Gandhi to hold midnight march at India Gate

Surjewala said the BJP-PDP government in Jammu and Kashmir failed to give justice to the minor girl raped in Kathua and the BJP government in Uttar Pradesh did not arrest a party legislator accused of rape of girl in Unnao.

Priyanka Vadra's husband Robert Vadra was also present in the protest march to the India Gate. "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. Congress MLA Aradhana Mishra said that seriousness of the yogi government for women could be gauged from the fact that chairperson of the state women's commission is yet to be appointed.

The situation in Jammu has been tense since the Kathua rape and murder. I want to say that the atrocities against women need to be addressed by the government. Today, women are feeling insecure to move out of their houses. Women should at least feel safe- Rahul Gandhi at the candlelight march against Kathua & Unnao cases.

"Like millions of Indians my heart hurts tonight", Gandhi tweeted. Prime Minister had given a slogan "Beti Padhao, Beti Bachao" (Save the Daughter, Teach the Daughter) and it is during his regime that our girls are being raped. UP Congress committee and youth congress workers also joined the protest. Taking to Twitter, Gandhi earlier said- "How can anyone protect the culprits of such evil?" "Congress President Rahul Gandhi to hold candlelight protest at India Gate at midnight of April 12-13, over Kathua and Unnao rape incidents" reports ANI. "India simply can not continue to treat its women the way it does", the Congress chief said in a tweet.

Cameroon athletes have gone missing from the Commonwealth Games
"According to the rules no athlete is supposed to go out without an official to accompany them", said Ogwel. Three more boxers have since vanished, sparking an Australian Border Force manhunt.

Amid slogans being raised against the government at the protest march, Gandhi said the women of the country are afraid to go out today and the government must ensure their safety and help them live in peace.

The protest lasted almost two hours.

Several people were seen having brought their children as well, but at times, the chaotic crowd appeared getting out of control and Priyanka Vadra was shoved by some, prompting her to ask people to maintain calm and remember the "cause" for which they had come there.
