Why is Sonia silent on Kerala rape, asks BJP


New Delhi, May 3 : BJP MP Meenakshi Lekhi on Tuesday demanded to know why Congress president Sonia Gandhi and vice president Rahul Gandhi had not spoken on the rape-cum-murder of a young woman in Kerala.

Targeting Rahul Gandhi, Lekhi said: “These people who politicise suicides have no time to visit the state.

“The Congress president herself is a woman but their concern for women and Dalits comes up only if the incident happens in a non-Congress state.”

A 30-year-old law student from a poor family was brutally murdered, after being allegedly raped, in Ernakulam in Kerala five days ago.
