Hathras Gang-Rape Case: UP Minister Questions Rahul, Priyanka Gandhi
The politics of Uttar Pradesh’s Hathras gang-rape issue is steadily increasing and Congress is continuously targetting UP CM Yogi Adityanath.
Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi and others from their party just want to play politics over the Hathras gang-rape incident, said Uttar Pradesh Minister Sidharth Nath Singh on Thursday (October 1). The UP Cabinet Minister further questioned why were the Congress leaders not visiting Rajasthan, from where a similar incident has been reported and added that even Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi should give answers for the incident in Rajasthan. Singh told a news agency, “Why are they not visiting Rajasthan? Will Sonia, Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi not give answers on what is happening in Rajasthan?”
Singh added, “They want to play politics over the Hathras issue by visiting the district.” His statements came as both Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi were scheduled to visit Hathras to meet the victim’s family on Thursday. Meanwhile, reports have surfaced about two minor girls being raped in Congress-led Rajasthan. The incident, according to reports, has taken place in Baran. The Rajasthan Police, however, have denied the rape charges. The Minister said that the matter of Hathras gang-rape will be heard in a fast track court and asserted that strictest possible punishment will be given in this case to set an example.
