Ruckus in parliament over Rahul Gandhi’s cheap comments over sexual crimes against women

In a bid to attack PM Modi, Rahul Gandhi went on to make sexist and insensitive remarks by trivialising the heinous crimes of rape. Speaking at a rally in Jharkhand, Gandhi said PM Modi's 'Make In India' has now become 'Rape In India'.

In a shocking incident, former Congress party President and Gandhi-scion Rahul Gandhi attempted to trivialise violent crimes against women by passing cheap remarks. He said that PM Modi had launched ‘Make in India’ but it had nowadays turned into ‘Rape in India’.

In a bid to attack PM Modi, Rahul Gandhi went on to make sexist and insensitive remarks by trivialising the heinous crimes of rape. He also attempted to mock the violent crimes against women by twisting a slogan originally intended to promote growth and economic development in the country.

Speaking at a public rally in Jharkhand on Thursday, Rahul Gandhi said, “Narendra Modi had said ‘Make in India’ but nowadays wherever you look, it is ‘Rape in India’. In Uttar Pradesh Narendra Modi’s MLA raped a woman, then she met with an accident but Narendra Modi did not utter a word”.

Rahul Gandhi’s shameful comment has triggered an uproar in the Parliament.  Several MPs including women members across the party lines condemned the statements made by former Congress President and demanded an apology.

On Friday, Union Minister Smriti Irani tore into Congress MP Rahul Gandhi over his “Rape in India” comment at a rally in Jharkhand on Thursday.

“This is for the first time in history that a leader is giving a clarion call that Indian women should be raped. Is this Rahul Gandhi’s message to the people of the country? He should be punished,” Irani said in the Lok Sabha today, minutes before it was adjourned till noon.

Launching a scathing attack on Rahul Gandhi, Rajnath Singh said people like Rahul Gandhi should not be elected to the House.

“The PM is promoting ‘Make in India’ so that the country becomes an export capital and generates employment opportunities. But equating that idea with something so vile is hurtful to not just me but the entire country. This kind of people should not be elected to the House,” Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said.

BJP MP from West Bengal Locket Chatterjee said, “Modi Ji said ‘Make in India’ but Rahul Ji said ‘rape in India’, he is welcoming everybody that come and rape us. This is an insult to Indian women and to Bharat Mata.

Several MPs also raised slogans of “Rahul Gandhi maafi maango (Rahul Gandhi Apologise)” in the Rajya Sabha over Rahul Gandhi’s ‘Rape in India’ remark.

Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu said, “You cannot take the name of a person who is not a member of this House. Nobody has the business to disturb the House.”

Shockingly, DMK MP Kanimozhi jumped into the rescue Rahul Gandhi in the Lower House and claimed that the Congress leader was trying to highlight the growing incidents of rape cases in India. “The PM has always been saying it has to be made in India so that India flourishes. what Rahul Gandhi said was that situation in India has changed,” she said.

Both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha have been adjourned till 12 pm amid massive uproar in parliament over Rahul Gandhi’s ‘Rape in India’ comment.

Read: After ‘heat of campaigning’ Rahul Gandhi uses ‘free flow of political speech’ to defend his lie about tribal law

Earlier this year, Rahul Gandhi was reprimanded by the Supreme Court for falsely attributing the ‘Chowkidar Chor Hai’ slogan to the SC judges. He had apologised and stated that the remarks were made in the “heat of campaigning”. It remains to be seen what kind of excuse he comes up with this time to cover up his mistake after turning the grave issue of sexual crimes against women into a cheap, mocking slogan.
