Parliament could not function because of BJP Kamal Nath

Speaking at an event commemorating Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar's birth anniversary at the state Congress office in Jaipur, Pilot said BJP is misusing Dr Ambedkar's name for political gains.

Addressing a press conference here, BJP MP and Spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi told the media: "In Kathua rape case, a fair probe is going on and strictest action has been demanded against the culprits".

The government has already announced that it would give rewards to the medal winners from the state, he added.

Singhvi demanded sacking of BJP Forest Minister Lal Singh and Industries Minister Chander Prakash Ganga in Jammu and Kashmir, who he alleged instigated the protests in Jammu in support of the accused rapists. "The Congress won't even gather 1000 people for Rahul Gandhi's visits if Siddaramaiah is thrown out of power".

Rishikesh (Uttrakhand): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader, Harak Singh Rawat, on Thursday, admitted to his mistake after consuming cashews and fruit juice on a day his leader and Prime Minister Narendra Modi had urged every BJP worker to observe a fast.

"An SIT (Special Investigation Team) was formed and six-seven persons were arrested. There are some people who want to politicise such incidents, but as a woman, I believe and it is my request that victim-shaming should not be done", she said.

"This proves what kind of dirty politics is being played in Jammu and Kashmir", she said.

Congress spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi noted that the Kathua and Unnao incidents can not be termed as "normal cases" and said these have shamed the nation.

He also criticised the UP government for not arresting accused BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and asked whether it was true that the lawmaker would have not been taken into custody had the Allahabad High Court not used harsh words.

The prime suspect in the case has also been charged with bribing local police officials, including a Sub-Inspector and a Head Constable, to destroy evidence.
