Congress President Rahul Gandhi led a midnight candlelight march in the national capital to protest against the Unnao and Kathua rape cases, saying that the daughters in the country are not safe in the hands of Modi government.
Rahul Gandhi was joined by his sister Priyanka and her husband Robert Vadra along with many party workers and students. The protestors shouted slogans against Modi government as well as against the state governments in Uttar Pradesh and Jammu & Kashmir.
"We are here against crimes being committed against women, against rapes, violence, murder and the government must act on this. This is a national issue and not a political one", Gandhi said.
"This is about our women. Thousands are present here including the common people and people from all parties. The situation in the country is such today that one after another incident of murder, rape and violence is taking place. We are standing against that we want the government to act", he said
