India wants to know when will its daughters get justice: Rahul Gandhi

"The BJP and RSS have an "anti-Dalit" mindset as their government has abolished the sub-plan for SC/STs, have talked of ending reservation and amending the Constitution which was framed by Dr. Ambedkar", Ms. Selja said.

The leaders of the BJP have said that the Congress is trying to politicise the rape cases to score political points ahead of the crucial Karnataka Assembly elections on May 12 and the Lok Sabha elections next year.

Those standing for rapists could be chauvinists or opportunists, but not Hindus, he said. Agarwal, however, did not explain as to why Prime Minister Narendra Modi, a self-proclaimed champion of women's rights, has been silent on the issue.

The candlelight protest on Thursday was called at a short notice, but it saw people converging at the India Gate in sizeable numbers to express their support.

"India wants to know: when?#SpeakUp", he said in a tweet.




In Kathua in Jammu and Kashmir, an eight-year-old girl from a minority nomadic community disappeared near her house on January 10. Rahul Gandhi in his tweet wrote, "Mr". Thousands are present here including the common people and people from all parties. Mir in a statement said the Kathua incident was the most heinous and barbaric crime against humanity.

The long-delayed charge sheet in the Kathua case indicates that eight-year-old Asifa was held in a captivity in a temple, raped by six men, and then bludgeoned to death.

Congress president raised the Beti Bachao slogan to showcase the large number of rapes, molestations, and attacks on college girls and working women in public transport, domestic violence, and police stations.

The Congress chief was joined by sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, her husband Robert Vadra and other senior party leaders in the vigil.
