Congress leader Rahul Gandhi Slams UP CM Over Hathras Case

Vastavam web: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, who had visited Hathras in Uttar Pradesh last week amid outrage over the alleged gang rape of a 20-year-old woman, this morning attacked Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in a tweet. “The shameful truth is many Indians don’t consider Dalits, Muslims and Tribals to be human. The CM & his police say no one was raped because for them, and many other Indians, she was NO ONE (sic),” the ex-Congress chief wrote in a tweet this morning, along with a news report that said the police had been denying the rape charges. The 20-year-old woman was allegedly assaulted by four men of her village on September 14. She died two weeks later after sustaining horrific injuries in a savage assault that many have compared to the 2012 gang rape in the national capital.

Last week, Mr Gandhi had visited the victim’s family, two days after he was stopped by the UP Police while marching to Hathras. Dramatic visuals showed him in a tussle with UP cops; he was pushed and he fell to the ground.
