Rahul, Sonia to visit their constituencies

When state Congress president Ghulam Ahmed Mir was asked about the involvement of the Congress leaders in a pro-rapist agitation, he said that he has expelled Kant Kumar from the party and didn't answer about the Congress' double standards. "Local population believe that investigation is motivated, the real culprit is being let go and they're trying to fulfil their political criteria".

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Sunday questioned Congress President Rahul Gandhi for his inaction against his party's Jammu and Kashmir president Ghulam Ahmad Mir over his controversial remarks on Kathua rape and murder case.

Javadekar, citing the BJP's decision to remove Singh and Ganga, wondered if Gandhi would only point fingers at others, but maintain silence on the comments of his party's J-K unit chief.

Javadekar also demanded an apology from senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad, noting that Bar Association of Jammu president B S Slahia, who had led the public protests against the police probe, was his poll agent in the 2014 Lok Sabha election. The BJP leader also questioned why Gandhi did not take out any march after the 2012 Nirbhaya gang rape.

Mounting an attack on the Christian missionaries, Singh said, "The Christian missionaries are unable to accept the surge of the BJP under the leadership of BJP chief Amit Shah and Prime Minister Narendra Modi". He said that the Congress was trying to defame the BJP. Yesterday, BSP chief and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati said that BJP is doing politics in the name of Ambedkar, atrocities against Dalits are still high. "Since the locals were adamant and did not allow them to offer flowers, we left the village without saying anything", said BJP's Etah district president, Dinesh Vashisht to the paper.
