Asked about two BJP ministers in Jammu and Kashmir resigning after participating in a rally to defend the accused, Maken said that this came in wake of "pressure which was built due to the protest led by Congress President Rahul Gandhi".
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.
Mr. Gandhi's sister, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, accompanied by her husband, also joined the protest at midnight. "Join me in a silent, peaceful, candlelight vigil at India Gate at midnight tonight to protest this violence and demand justice", tweeted Rahul Gandhi. "The women of the country should feel safe", he said.
Demanding action against accused of Unnao and Kathua rape cases, Congress president Rahul Gandhi has reached here to hold a midnight candlelight march.
"Women in India are scared to step out of their homes".
Anti-BJP slogans were heard at the march even as senior Congress leaders urged the people to keep it a "silent" protest.
Both the Unnao and Kathua rape cases have a marked similarity in the sense that in both cases the assailants have been identified, yet justice is yet to be served.
