Day 20 of the Rahul Yatra: A moment of silence for the murder victim of Uttarakhand resort; woman says BJP doesn’t respect her
On Tuesday, Rahul Gandhi accused Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami of destroying evidence in the sensational murder case of Ankita Bhandari.
During his Bharat Jodo Yatra in Malappuram, Rahul spoke about the murder case to Congress workers. Rahul asked, “We have the best example of how the BJP and RSS treat women in the country in the murder of the resort receptionist.” In this case, what did the Chief Minister do? The resort owned by the accused BJP leader was destroyed by him. To prevent anyone from finding any evidence in the case. Women in the country are treated this way by the BJP.
Rahul said the RSS and the BJP view women as objects and second-class citizens. The BJP would say that women are to blame whenever women are abused. According to him, a country that cannot respect its women will never achieve anything.
