Mr Prime Minister, your silence is unacceptable. India is waiting: Congress Chief Rahul Gandhi



NEW DELHI: Congress chief Rahul Gandhi on Friday took another swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi's silence over the Unnao and Kathua gang-rape cases.

“Mr Prime Minister, your silence is unacceptable.
1.What do YOU think about the growing violence against women & children?
2. Why are accused rapists and murderers protected by the state? India is waiting,” Rahul wrote on Twitter. The statement comes a day after the Congress president led the midnight candlelight march in the national capital.

As anger mounts across the country over the gruesome gang-rape of the two minors, several Opposition parties have questioned the PM's silence.

Earlier in the day, he thanked "thousands of men and women" who stood with him in protesting the rising acts of violence against girls and women and said their battle for justice would not be in vain.
