Rahul Gandhi alleged that PM Modi had remained silent over the atrocities against women in the backdrop of rapes of girls in shelter homes in Bihar and in Uttar Pradesh

Rahul Gandhi hit outNew Delhi:  Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of remaining silent on incidents of alleged rape, including in shelter homes in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh, and asserted that
what is happening against women during his tenure, had not happened in the previous 3,000 years in
India.

Mr. Gandhi also said that his aim was to have 50% women in the Congress while asserting that the BJP
cannot put forward such a vision as its “parent organisation”, the RSS, was a “male chauvinist
organisation”.

Taking a swipe at the government’s campaign of “beti bachao, beti padhao”, he said that it was actually
for “saving the daughters from BJP MLAs”, an apparent reference to some BJP leaders accused in rape
cases.

He alleged that Mr. Modi had remained silent over the atrocities against women in the backdrop of rapes
of girls in shelter homes in Muzaffarpur in Bihar and in Uttar Pradesh.

“The Prime Minister speaks on everything — bullet train, aeroplanes, toilets, but not women. Whenever
there are atrocities on women, he does not speak up,” Mr. Gandhi said.

“[He] had talked about changing India, had talked about 70 years…what they have done against women in
the last four years, had not happened in the previous 3,000 years in this country, leave alone 70
years,” Mr. Gandhi said.

The Congress leader, while addressing a “Mahila Adhikaar Sammelan” at Talkatora Stadium in New Delhi,
promised to extend his party’s full support to the passage of the women reservation bill and said if
the Modi government does not bring it, the Congress will do so soon after coming to power.

He also talked of empowering women within the Congress and bringing them forward in the organisation,
for them to lead a State or the country one day.

He promised to include more women in central units of the AICC, saying “the country needs them”.

“In U.P. women are raped, the Prime Minister does not say a word on it. In Jharkhand and in various
States women are raped, in Bihar small girls are raped, but our Prime Minister cannot speak a word on
it,” he said.

In a reference to the Unnao rape case, Mr. Gandhi said that in U.P. “their MLA is accused of rape”, but
the Prime Minister does not say a word.

Women across the country go out scared, he claimed.

The Congress chief also said that whenever the prime minister goes abroad, he embraces leaders, but has
no answer to the question — why women are not safe in India.

He promised to bring women to the forefront of the party in framing policy, manifesto and strengthening
the organisation. He said his job as the Congress president is to ensure women have equal space in the
organisation.

“We are going to create space for you in the Congress party. We need to create special space for women
in our party. We need to create a space at every level.

“The RSS and the BJP will never be able to show the country a similar vision. Their parent
organisation, the RSS, in its history has never allowed a woman into its organisation,” Mr. Gandhi
said.

“There are other organisations in the BJP that have females in it, but the RSS is a completely male
chauvinist organisation that does not believe in giving space to women,” Mr. Gandhi alleged, adding
that they simply “can’t do what we can do“.

The day one woman enters the RSS, it will not remain the RSS, Mr. Gandhi said.

The ideology of the BJP and the RSS is that India will be run by men, women cannot run this country, he
said.

“Women’s place is at the back and men’s place is in front. This is the biggest difference between us
and them,” the Congress leader said.

Launching a fierce attack on the Prime Minister, Mr. Gandhi said various institutions were under attack
from the BJP and the RSS, who have “devastated” the country, and that the Congress party will unitedly
defeat them in the coming days.

“Institutions are under attack in the country, be it Parliament, vidhan sabhas and the judiciary.
Minorities, Dalits, women, tribals, small businessmen are under attack. We will fight the BJP and
defeat them in the coming days.

“The Congress party and the opposition are working together to fight the ideology of the BJP. We are
fighting an ideological battle,” he said.

Talking about the women reservation bill, which is pending for the last few years, the Congress chief
said the BJP lacks commitment on the issue.

Promising to bring women forward within the Congress and give them their rightful place, Mr. Gandhi
while pointing to the slogan “your fight is our fight” put up at the conference, said you can add “your
right is Congress president’s fight”.

He said if he faced with a choice between a man and a woman for selecting election candidate, he will
choose whoever is more capable.

“If both are equally capable, I will choose the woman as a candidate,” Mr. Gandhi said.

Mr. Gandhi, along with Mahila Congress president Sushmita Dev, unveiled the flag and the symbol of
Mahila Congress.

Mr. Gandhi also said that the media should no longer worry, while alleging that the BJP and the RSS are
frightening them.
