Rahul Gandhi slams PM Modi, accuses BJP of 'protecting' rapists

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday alleging that his party's support to criminals displays its mindset towards women. 

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday alleging that his party's support to criminals displays its mindset towards women.

In a tweet in Hindi the Congress MP wrote, "Unnao - worked to save BJP MLA. Kathua - rally in favour of rapists. Hathras - the government in favour of rapists. Gujarat - the release and honour of rapists. The support to criminals displays the petty mindset of the BJP towards women."

He further asked the Prime Minister if he was not ashamed of playing such politics.

Gandhi's remarks have been made in the wake of release of Biknis Bano rape case convicts who walked out of jail on August 15 under Gujarat government's special remission policy.

Earlier, senior Congress leader P Chidambaram had claimed that two BJP MLAs were part of the review panel that granted the rape convicts remission.

Eleven convicts, sentenced to life imprisonment, walked out of the Godhra sub-jail on August 15 after the Gujarat government allowed their release under its remission policy citing that they had completed over 15 years in jail.

Bilkis Bano was 5 months pregnant when she was gang-raped in the aftermath of Godhra riots. Her 3-year-old daughter was also killed in the violence.
