New Delhi: When country condemns in the recent rape cases in Kathua and Unnao. Question has raised at PM’s silence, “How can the Prime Minister be silent?”
When his countrymen cries in pain, speculation has also arise, how can he enjoy a ride in a new Metro rail.
Amid the protest across the nation against Kathua and Unnao rape cases and its huge outrage for justice, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday boarded the Delhi Metro from the Lok Kalyan Marg Metro Station to travel to 26, Alipur Road.News agency ANI tweeted pictures of PM Modi travelling by the Metro and sitting in a coach with his security around him. The PM also obliged fellow commuters and clicked selfies with them during the Metro ride.
Number of students and women organisations protested across the nation over the silence maintained by Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the horrific crimes. The groundswell of horror against the alleged bid to communalise the gory gang rape and murder of eight-year-old Asifa in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kathua grew across the country on Thursday as outrage reminiscent of the Nirbhaya protests erupted on social media.
As of now it is perhaps the most widespread outrage being witnessed over rape cases since the Nirbhaya incident, nearly 20 city-based organisations would hold protests at Mumbai’s Azad Maidan on Friday. People from all walks of life — politicians, sportspersons and actors — have spoken out and demanded strict action against the culprits.
The contrast between Modi’s silence and BJP’s ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’ campaign – save the girl child, educate the girl child – has given his political opponents fresh fodder to attack the ruling party. On Thursday midnight, Congress leaders, including Ahmed Patel, Ghulam Nabi Azad, Ambika Soni, Ashok Gehlot, Randeep Singh Surjewala and Sushmita Dev, joined Gandhi and walked from the party headquarters to India Gate along with hundreds of party workers holding candles, recalling similar protests that had been held after the brutal gang-rape of 23-year-old paramedical student Nirbhaya in 2012. Several students, people from civil society groups, professionals and mediapersons, too, joined the march.
