In an attempt to decry PM Modi for the offenses against women in the country, Rahul Gandhi labeled India as the ‘rape capital’ of the world. Addressing a public rally in Kerala’s Wayanad, the senior Congress said that the global nations are questioning India’s ability to protect women. The statement comes amid an unfortunate upward trend in crimes against women and a nation-wide furor over multiple rape cases.
Addressing a rally in Kerala’s Sulthan Bathery earlier on Saturday, Rahul Gandhi accused the Prime Minister of the rise in crimes against women. Listing the increasing violence against Dalits, minorities, and women, he said it was because PM Modi believes in violence. The Congress leader’s comment comes a day after the Unnao rape victim passed away because of a cardiac arrest, succumbing to burn injuries in New Delhi.
