Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday launched an attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said that the Prime Minister is always silent in crimes against women. He also said that the daughters should be saved from BJP MLAs.

While speaking at an event organised by the women wing of the Congress (Mahila Congress) Rahul said, "The PM doesn't say anything on the incidents of rape. What happened against women in these four years is something which didn't happen even in last 70 years."

He added, “The Prime Minister speaks on everything, but does not utter a word when crimes are committed against women in Uttar Pradesh and other Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ruled states. No action is taken against the accused if he is a member of their party.”

Rahul Gandhi further said, “If they table the Women's Reservation Bill, we will give them full support but if they don't, then as soon as Congress party comes to the power we will pass the bill.”

Rahul also tried to corner the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, saying it only wants men to sit in Parliament. He said, “The ideology of the BJP & the RSS is that only the men will run this country and if it is anywhere that the women belong, it is at the back.”

The Congress President was addressing an event organised by the Mahila Congress – the women wing of the Congress Party. During the event he also unveiled the new flag of the women wing.
