BJP eroding Ambedkar's legacy, PM Modi paying lip-service: Congress

Rail Minister Manoj Sinha led protest in Ghazipur while Kaushal Kishore sat on fast in Lucknow. Singh also said he had already spoken to BJP president Amit Shah and J&K Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on the issue.

But unfortunately, the leader of India and self-proclaimed well-wisher of women could not spare time from his "super-busy" schedule to utter a single word about the outrageous Kathua rape-murder and Unnao gangrape cases.

"Is it a crime to get misled?" she asked, adding that the people get misled and this can happen with anyone.

An eight-year-old girl from the nomadic Bakerwal Muslim community disappeared near her house on January 10 in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua district.

Singhvi also took a swipe at BJP women ministers, who he claimed had as opposition members made critical remarks against the then UPA government. "Also, I would like to say it on record that the Jammu Bar Association president (B.S.) Slathiaji was the polling agent of Ghulam Nabi Azadji", Lekhi said. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on the other hand, from day one had been working hard to improve the situation of Dalits and backwards.

Congress spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi noted that the Kathua and Unnao incidents can not be termed as "normal cases" and said these have shamed the nation.

He said she has chosen to look at incidents such as the Kathua and Unnao cases through the "prism of religion".

"This pressure is being built by those who are heading the Bar Council and Bar Associations".

"This proves what kind of dirty politics is being played in Jammu and Kashmir", she said. The state government has taken action against the erring doctors and they have been suspended.

The prime suspect in the case has also been charged with bribing local police officials, including a Sub-Inspector and a Head Constable, to destroy evidence.

In the Unnao case, a 17-year-old girl has alleged she was raped by BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar at his residence on June 4, 2017.
