Uproar in Parliament over Rahul Gandhi's 'rape in India' comment, proceedings adjourned

Union Minister for Women and Child Development Smriti Irani said that it is an insult to the women of India and the country for which Rahul Gandhi should apologize

There is a lot of uproar in Parliament over a comment on the rape of former Congress President Rahul Gandhi. Due to this, proceedings of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha also had to be stopped. As the Question Hour began on the last day of the winter session, many women members of the BJP stood in their places and started demanding apology from Rahul Gandhi. Union Minister for Women and Child Development Smriti Irani said that for the first time a leader has given such a statement. He said that this is an insult to the women of India and the country and Rahul Gandhi should apologize. Several other ministers and members of the BJP also demanded an apology from Rahul Gandhi.

On the other hand, Congress members also raised slogans. Party leader Adhir Ranjan Chaudhary appeared, complaining that he was not being allowed to speak. Amid sloganeering from both sides, Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla urged the members to go to the seats and run the Question Hour. However, seeing the commotion did not stop, he adjourned the house meeting till 12 noon. On the other hand, there was a lot of uproar in this issue also in Rajya Sabha. There was a heated argument between the BJP and Congress members.

On Thursday, Rahul Gandhi attacked the Modi government at a rally in Jharkhand. He had said, ‘Narendra Modi had said in the country, Make in India, now wherever you look there is not Make in India but Rape in India. If you open a newspaper, then you rape a woman in Jharkhand, Narendra Modi’s MLA rapes a woman in UP… Everyday rapes in India ‘.
