Gandhi led a candle light march in the nation capital which was also joined by his sister Priyanka Vadra. Rahul Gandhi in his tweet wrote, "Mr".

Perhaps, Gandhi had in mind the backlash he and his party faced for their delayed response to the gang rape of a paramedic in Delhi on December 16, 2012.

During the protest, Gandhi slammed the Prime Minister over the repeated incidents of violence, rape and murder of women in the country. What do YOU think about the growing violence against women and children? 2.

Social justice is not a lip service for the government but a commitment, "but the kind of incidents we have seen in the past challenge the very concept of social justice", said Modi.

Earlier today, Congress president Rahul Gandhi had challenged PM Modi to speak up on the two rape cases, calling his silence "unacceptable". He is also likely to reach out to the parents of the victim, sources in the party said. "The women of the country should feel safe", he said. "It was a good and from-the-heart gesture, and conveyed the right message to the young people enraged over the Kathua and Unnao rapes", said political analyst Professor Balveer Arora. India simply can not continue to treat its women the way it does.

The Congress leader alleged that the BJP was trying to amend the Constitution drafted by the Dalit icon and putting "a question mark" on reservation.

In a seemingly coordinated move, Modi's sharp condemnation of Kathua and Unnao incidents at the inauguration of Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar memorial here was followed by BJP's two ministers - Lal Singh and Chander Prakash - submitting their resignations to the state unit party chief Sat Sharma. The protest lasted almost two hours.

Scores of members of these organisations ~ including the AIDWA, NFIW, Pragatisheel Mahila Sangathan, JNUSU, SFI and AISA ~ carrying placards raised slogans against the BJP dispensation here this afternoon, accusing the BJP governments of allegedly protecting the accused in both the Kathua and Unnao cases.

With the crowds making a rush towards Congress leaders, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra looked a bit miffed with their behaviour.
