Congress President Rahul Gandhi today said that Modi gave the slogan of “Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao” but remains silent on incidents of rape across the country.
Rahul Gnadhi was addressing a meeting of women Self-Help Groups (SHGs) and here, he said though Modi gave the slogan of “Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao”, he is maintaining silence on rape of women and girls in different states.
“A BJP MLA in Uttar Pradesh raped a woman but the Prime Minister was silent. In Bihar minor girls were raped but he did not speak a word. Incidents of rape are taking place across the country but he is not opening his mouth,” he said.
Rahul, who arrived here on a two-day visit, kicked off the party’s campaign for the coming elections to Telangana Assembly and Lok Sabha.
He said that Congress strongly believes that the country cannot progress without women and they should get their due in politics, economy and other spheres of life.
