Earlier in the morning, all the rank & files of INC party gathered at Rajiv Gandhi Bhawan, Itanagar and registered its strong protest against detention of Shri Rahul Gandhi, former Congress President and Smt. Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, Gen.Secy AICC, I/c UP, who were mishandled & detained on the highway between Delhi and Uttar Pradesh as they headed to Hathras (UP) to meet the family of the gang rape victim who died on Tuesday last and whose final rites were performed forcefully by the UP Police shocked the nation.
BJP’s conspiracy to strangle the truth on the ego of power will not succeed as they have failed to protect the daughters of the country. The history of Congress is about to bear sticks and bullets on the chest for justice. Not bullets, not batons, not even tyrants will stop the Congress party to fight for the right & justice of the people.
APCC condemned UP Govt. for its total breakdown of law & order, especially with rising cases of crime against women and demands the resignation of Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath by taking moral responsibility over the Hathras incident and for his total failure to ensure safety of women in UP.
