Rahul Gandhi On Three-Day Amethi Visit From Today

Later on Sunday, the Congress dismissed Javadekar's call for action against Mir, saying it was his demand that pushed the investigation into the case initially. 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.

Mir's remarks came after the BJP this morning played a video purportedly showing him calling the police probe into the rape and killing of an eight-year-old girl in Kathua as motivated and defending the public protests against it.

Senior BJP leader and Union Minister Prakash Javadekar has attacked Congress President Rahul Gandhi accusing his party of doing politics on Kathua rape and murder case. "Pointing fingers at others but protecting people who do the same - this is the Congress' character".

Indian PM Will Visit Sweden and the UK
On 5 January, Modi had asked officials to devote the coming three months in developing these backward districts. He mentioned the Ayushman Bharat and Gram Swaraj programmes, saying these will empower the weaker sections.

The two ministers - Lal Singh and Chander Prakash Ganga - resigned on Friday, soon after Prime Minister Narendra Modi said these incidents, including a rape case in which a BJP MLA from Unnao district of Uttar Pradesh is the accused, had shamed the country and that justice would be ensured in all the cases. The BJP leader also questioned why Gandhi did not take out any march after the 2012 Nirbhaya gang rape. "He should apologize to nation". Congress sources said in Rae Bareli, Rahul would interact with the locals and party workers, and attend some social events too.

Javadekar and Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari also referred to an incident, in which some people, sporting saffron "gamcha" and wielding swords, raised provocative slogans in front of a mosque here during a Ram Navami procession. The opposition parties including Congress, BSP have alleged that the ruling BJP is mistreating Dalits and they have also alleged that government is trying to end the reservation given to the backward community in the Constitution.

Similarly, former Chief Minister of J&K Omar Abdullah is trying to score brownie points against CM Mehbooba and the BJP by tweeting frequently on the case.
