Congress playing dirty politics over rape issue: BJP

BJP members beat up police with broom

In national interest, it is important to criticise incidents like the Kathua and Unnao rape cases, which have "shook the head of the entire nation in shame", he said.

She said that women and children have no religion and that no politics should be done over such issues.

Speaking on the rape incident in Uttar Pradesh's Unnao, Lekhi said, "This is a 10-month-old case".

A video clipping of the two relishing on sandwiches and chips went viral on social media and was broadcast by television channels, even as embarrassed state BJP leaders kept mum. "They were secular then, but the BJP has vitiated the atmosphere so badly in Jammu and Kashmir that these individuals have now turned communal", Azad said.

"The protest will expose the handful of people, who had throttled democracy by disrupting the 23 days' work of the budget session of the Parliament", the Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for AYUSH added, pointing out that the Congress has also instigated other opposition parties to display unruly behaviour in the Parliament. "The Congress divided the society to remain in power and its rule will end soon", he said. He once again asserted that Chief Minister Siddaramaiah would suffer defeat from both constituencies he may contest from. "Did it not know this for the last four years".

"The state government has taken action against the erring doctors as they have been suspended".

He also criticised the UP government for not arresting accused BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and asked whether it was true that the lawmaker would have not been taken into custody had the Allahabad High Court not used harsh words.

Talking to reporters here this evening, he dismissed NCP's ongoing "Hallabol" rallies saying they were nothing but trips of their senior leaders in AC coaches and this would not any adverse effect on BJP's performance. "If not anything, let them share some crocodile tears, give some clarification", he said.
