All Necessary Steps Be Taken for Women's Security: Rahul
send via whatsapp

Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi today called for taking all necessary steps to improve law and order to ensure safety and security of women in the wake of repeated incidents of rape coming to light across the country.

He also called for changing the people's mindset, which, he said, is a "major challenge" and needs to be addressed urgently.

"We must take all necessary steps to improve law and order to ensure safety and security for women. But changing mindset is a major challenge and one that we must address urgently. There can be no development, no prosperity and no progress if such barbarism is allowed to continue," he said in a statement.

Gandhi said it was "deeply disturbing" to hear about "gruesome" incidents where women are made a target of such "extreme violence".

Referring to the brutal rape and murder of two young girls in Badaun in UP and the recent rape of a minor girl in Jhalawar in Rajasthan, he said an alleged rape, which had taken place in his Lok Sabha constituency Amethi yesterday, "is unacceptable".

"I am extremely saddened to learn of an alleged rape in Amethi. The matter is under investigation. We are closely monitoring the situation and following up with the district administration to ensure that all the facts come to light and justice is meted out quickly," he said.

Surprised that Nonsense hasn't said that rape is a "state of mind".

What was Rahul doing and saying, as he hid behind his mother's pallu while he was in power for 10 years?

Oh, that would have been confessing to things being really bad for women, during his party's long, useless tenure.

Is changing the mindset of people as difficult as reparing an EVM?
