Congress president Rahul Gandhi is addressing a rally in Datia district of Madhya Pradesh and has alleged that PM Narendra Modi is shielding rape accused MLA and other accusers for electoral gains.

 In the poll bound state of Madhya Pradesh, Rahul Gandhi is touring the districts so as to garner votes and clamp upon the high anti-incumbency spread across the state against the Shivraj Singh’s government.

Rahul Gandhi, while addressing the rally said that “Modi ji gave the slogan 'Beti Bachao Beti Padhao'. We liked the slogan but then a BJP MLA raped someone.”

He added while attacking PM Modi and CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan that “he CM tried to shield him, PM didn't expel him from the party. He never spoke about it. Actual slogan is 'Beti Padhao aur Beti ko BJP ke MLA se bachao.”

 

 

Amidst the #MeToo campaign, the Narendra Modi led BJP government came under severe attack by journalists, activists and civil society members when more than 10 women journalist accused Minister of State for External Affairs M.J Akbar of sexual misconduct.

Rahul Gandhi is encashing upon the allegations and in the rally is trying to remind the citizens about the hypocrisy of BJP and how it has become an industrialist government, favouring the business class.

Rahul Gandhi further said in the rally that “PM has no room in his heart for oppressed & women. He has room only for industrialists. Mehul Bhai, Nirav Bhai, Anil Bhai, Lalit Bhai, he never calls farmers & labourers 'Bhai'. Have you ever heard Modi ji calling poor 'Bhai'? Never. If he isn't in suit-boot, he isn't 'Bhai.”
