Modi said that rape must disturb us and he pushed for hanging rapists. If successful, India would be the fourth nation to achieve the feat after the US, Russia and China.

"Whether it is a Dalit or be it someone who has been persecuted or exploited or be it a deprived person or women, our Parliament has made social justice stronger with all the sensitivity and alertness to protect their interests", PM Modi said.
