"Dear Prime Minister, Thank you for breaking your long silence". Our daughters will get justice. "The incidents that have been in discussion for the last two days are shameful". His statement came as a reference to the alleged rape of a 17-year-old girl in UP's Unnao and of an 8-year-old girl in J&K's Kathua. Her body was found in the same area a week later.

Among the accused in the case are police officers and a retired government official. In the Unnao case, a BJP lawmaker has been booked on various charges, including rape. Amid heightened public anger, the Central Bureau of Investigation arrested MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar on Friday night on the directions of the Allahabad high court.

"The BJP and RSS have an "anti-Dalit" mindset as their government has abolished the sub-plan for SC/STs, have talked of ending reservation and amendment to the Constitution which was framed by Ambedkar", Selja said while addressing a press conference on Ambedkar Jayanti. Many said they did not expect such a turnout.

"Is it respect if you try to amend the legacy of Babasaheb Ambedakar?" A day after the PM's acerbic speech targeting Congress on the Dalit front, AICC spokesperson Kumari Selja said, "One should not forget what views RSS and its ideologues had about Ambedkar during his lifetime".

Asifa, the minor, was held captive by the accused at a temple and later she was raped, mutilated and murdered in Rassana village of Kathua months ago, crime branch of Jammu and Kashmir police stated.

"I strongly condemn the party, which sees even rape on religious and class lines". On Twitter, the Congress said: "BJP's MP Meenakshi Lekhi's insensitive remark is an insult to Indian citizens standing up for their rights. She must take back her words and apologise immediately".
