Congress, BJP in Rajasthan attack each other over fast politics

As Modi led nationwide fast, Maharashtra BJP leaders caught chomping on chips, sandwiches

As Congress president Rahul Gandhi challenged Prime Minister Modi to break his silence, the ruling BJP pressed into action half a dozen leaders to go on record against the outrageous incidents.

Speaking at an event commemorating Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar's birth anniversary at the state Congress office in Jaipur, Pilot said BJP is misusing Dr Ambedkar's name for political gains.

So far, eight persons, including mastermind Sanji Ram, have been charged with abduction, rape and murder of the eight-year-old girl in Kathua's Rasana village in January.

"Then on October 30, 2017, the MLA's supporters filed a defamation case against the family of the rape victim in court and from there the fight between the two parties started".

The Delhi Congress took out candle marches across the city tonight to protest the Kathua and Unnao minor rape cases and slammed the BJP for the alleged rise in crimes against the women across the country.

She said that women and children have no religion and that no politics should be done over such issues.

"When the girl came back on June 21, police recorded her statement in front of the magistrate, where she did not take the name of the BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar".

BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi too was fielded by party in the day to distance the saffron outfit from the two ministers in J&K for defending the accused.

Amid global outrage over the rape and murder of a minor girl in Kathua district of Indian Occupied Kashmir, Chauhan has given a weird theory, saying enemy agents are involved in stirring unrest in the contested valley.

A flustered Azad accepted his association with Salathia, but accused BJP of turning his former polling agent "communal". Also, J&K Minister from BJP quota Lal Singh was in Congress.

The crisis-manager for BJP-PDP alliance in Jammu and Kashmir Ram Madhav on Thursday evening had dropped hints of an impending face-saver for Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, who had apparently been facing political heat to revisit ties with the saffron outfit.
