Congress, BJP in Rajasthan attack each other over fast politics

  • Prime Minister Modi and BJP president Amit Shah will be observing a day-long fast tomorrow April 12

Congress leader Selja also charged the prime minister with doing politics over the legacy of the Dalit icon. He said he had eaten cashews at an event by mistake.

A video clipping of the two relishing on sandwiches and chips went viral on social media and was broadcast by television channels, even as embarrassed state BJP leaders kept mum.

Earlier, Home Minister Rajnath Singh, in an interview to a news channel, had stated that the culprits in both Kathua and Unnao would be punished and justice done to the victims.

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. "India is waiting", Gandhi tweeted, using the hashtag "SpeakUp".

Bharatiya Janata Party leader Nandkumar Singh Chauhan has said that Hindus number less than 1 per cent of the population in Indian-held Kashmir, reported Financial Express.


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. "There are some people who want to politicise such incidents, but as a woman, I believe and it is my request that victim-shaming should not be done", she said.

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.

Responding to this, Union Minister Smriti Irani, while condemning "efforts to politicise" such cases, said stern action would be taken against those found guilty in the Unnao rape case, in which a BJP MLA is the primary accused, . "Yes, he was my polling agent".

Questioning the silence of Modi, Singhvi said, "The prime minister, Uttar Pradesh chief minister (Yogi Adityanath) and Jammu and Kashmir chief minister (Mehbooba Mufti) have to speak the truth and the time has arrived for that".
