Rape incidents: APCC takes out candle light protest

ITANAGAR, Apr 13: Taking along the initiative of Congress president Rahul Gandhi on women’s protection, Arunachal Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) today took out a candle light protest here against the Central Government’s reported silence on the Kathua and Unnao rape incidents and increasing atrocities against women in the country.

All the senior Congress leaders, PCC office bearers, heads of frontal organizations and its office bearers, DCCs/CCC/BCCs, Panchayat & Municipal leaders and party workers attended the programme.

APCC termed the two incidents as most unfortunate and horrific which have shocked the nation. “The rape incident happened in the BJP ruled states and the BJP is trying to shield the accused. BJP forgot the slogans like ‘Bahut hua nari par vaar’ and ‘Beti Bachao’ with which they came to power in 2014. There is complete lawlessness and rising acts of violence against girls and women in the country under BJP rule,” it alleged.

APCC demanded immediate arrest of all the culprits involved in the heinous incidents and to give exemplary punishment to them as per law of the land.
