Congress demands rape accused should be hanged till death

Vehicles continue to have preference over pedestrians in the

"India is waiting", the 47-year-old Congress president tweeted, using the hashtag "SpeakUp".

Following Gandhi's protest, some PCC units too staged protests on Friday. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, known to tweet on every issue, hasn't thought that rape of two women in the BJP ruled states and the shielding of the accused by his party as even an issue to give out a statement.

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. But it wasn't just workers at the spot - several others also joined in, having seen messages about the protest on WhatsApp or social media. "Yogi Adityanath government is a government of Ravan, which has failed to protect women", Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said.

Amid slogans against the BJP and the prime minister during the march, Gandhi said the women of the country are afraid to go out today and the government must ensure their safety. She also asserted that the party demands strict action against the accused in both the cases.

Former Congress president Sonia Gandhi, her daughter Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, senior party leaders Salman Khurshid, Ahmed Patel, Ashok Gehlot, and Ambika Soni also took part in the protest.

Asifa, the minor, was held captive by the accused at a temple and later she was raped, mutilated and murdered in Rassana village of Kathua months ago, crime branch of Jammu and Kashmir police stated.

All India Students Association (AISA) state secretary Neeraj Kumar said, "In the Unnao gangrape case, the BJP MLA should be immediately arrested". Earlier on Thursday, in an attempt to pressure the Centre to take action in the gang-rape cases of the minors in Kathua and Unnao, Rahul led a midnight march to the India Gate in Delhi. The victim's father died in custody in Unnao yesterday, prompting the woman to charge that he was killed inside the district jail at the behest of the BJP legislator.
