Congress demands rape accused should be hanged till death

"This is a national issue and not a political one", said Gandhi as Congress leaders and workers marched towards India Gate before police dispersed them.

Hitting back at the Prime Minister, who had lashed out at the Congress on Friday, Selja said the PM was only interested in doing politics over the legacy of the Dalit icon.

"Like millions of Indians, my heart hurts tonight", Gandhi wrote on Twitter after addressing an estimated 5,000 people at Thursday's midnight vigil. India simply can not continue to treat its women the way it does.

But on Thursday, Gandhi was quick to seize the opportunity though he had by then faced enough flak on the social media for his silence on the matter.

The BJP spokesperson also clarified that her party does not support the act of two BJP Jammu and Kashmir ministers who were seen at a rally supporting the alleged Kathua rapists. The BJP was caught unawares.

Selja said the Congress had given Ambedkar the responsibility to draft the Constitution under his chairmanship. We never expected such a huge response.

Apart from scores of Congress workers, there were also students, people from civil society groups, professionals and mediapersons in the march. "The Congress stands for justice to the minor victim of rape and murder and demands the culprits get exemplary punishment", he said.

With less than a month left for the Karnataka assembly election day, Rahul Gandhi seems to be planning to make at least three visits to the state, this intensifies the party's campaigning as it tries to retain power there, sources said.

Later, on Saturday, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti requested J&K HC Chief Justice for the establishment of special fast-track court for Kathua Rape Case.

On Friday, Gandhi thanked all those who had assembled for the march.

Congress president raised the Beti Bachao slogan to showcase the large number of rapes, molestations, and attacks on college girls and working women in public transport, domestic violence, and police stations. "It shall not be in vain", he tweeted.
