Two days after the Hathras gangrape victim’s death, Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra along with most Congress members were en route on foot to meet with the victim’s family.

The Congress has alleged that Rahul Gandhi was harassed by the BJP led UP Police. The BJP has denied this allegation and retorted by saying that it’s just drama created by the Congress.
When asked why were they denied entry, Rahul Gandhi remarked, “Because it is Narendra Modi’s India.” Priyanka Gandhi Vadra went to say, “Women are raped everyday in UP. Everyday there is a new case.
