Meghalaya Pradesh Congress Committee today organised silent Satyagraha protesting against the brutal rape and murder of 19 years old. The MPCC, further, strongly condemned the Uttar Pradesh Government for assault against Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi. Displaying placards which say ‘Stop oppression against Tribals and Dalits’, ‘We strongly condemn NDA Government’, ‘Stop Rape- if not us then who? If not now than when?’ ‘Stop harassing opposition leaders, ”Stop violence against women.’
The brutal gangrape and murder of a Dalit girl from Hathras in Uttar Pradesh have shaken the conscience of the nation.
The Congress also criticised the UP government for the events of October 1 when Rahul Gandhi and the party’s UP in-charge Priyanka Gandhi along with other leaders tried to go to Hathras to meet the victim’s family and the delegation was stopped at the UP border itself.
