New Delhi: The Election Commission has sought a reply from the officers of Jharkhand regarding Rahul Gandhi's 'rape in India' statement following a complaint by Union Minister Smriti Irani. Rahul said during an election rally in Godda on 12 December - Modi says Make in India, but nowadays wherever you look, there is 'rape in India'. On this, the BJP demanded an apology from Rahul in Parliament. Then at the Congress's 'Save India' rally, Gandhi said - My name is Rahul Savarkar, not Rahul Gandhi. I will not apologize for speaking the right thing.
Even after the uproar over the statement in Parliament, Rahul refused to apologize. He said that Narendra Modi had described Delhi as a rape capital. I have a clip of this. After this, other women MPs including Smriti had filed a complaint in the Election Commission. Smriti said that we have told the commission that there should not be any kind of politics about women's crimes. Rahul Gandhi used rape as a political gimmick.
Fadnavis said - not even equal to Rahul Savarkar's nails
Rahul said at a Congress rally on Saturday - my name is Rahul Savarkar, not Rahul Gandhi. I will not apologize for speaking the right thing. This statement was opposed by BJP and Shiv Sena. Former Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis had said that Rahul's statement is shameful. Savarkar spent 12 years in Andaman prison for torture. Rahul cannot bear even 12 hours. They are not even equal to Savarkar's nails. At the same time, Shiv Sena spokesman Sanjay Raut tweeted, "Savarkar is a national name and self-respecting." Savarkar, like Nehru and Gandhi, gave up his life for independence. Every such deity should be respected. There will be no compromise on this. ''
