Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Vadra Enroute To Hathras; Smriti Irani Calls Visit ‘Political Gimmick’

New Delhi: Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Vadra moved to Hathras to meet the family of the 19-year-old victim, whose brutal gang-rape, murder and forceful cremation triggered widespread protests across the country.

Earlier, along with the two leaders, dozens of Congress MPs including Shashi Tharoor were also travelling to Hathras.

As per the latest development on the incident, the Uttar Pradesh government on Saturday afternoon allowed the visit of five people including Rahul and Priyanka to proceed to Hathras.

Saturday’s visit to Hathras by Congress leaders comes barely two days after Rahul and Priyanka were stopped and allegedly manhandled by Uttar Pradesh Police during their visit to Hathras.

Other Congress leaders were also detained, and a case was registered against them under the Epidemic Diseases Act.

Priyanka, earlier in the day, said “I will visit Hathras at any cost even if the police does not allow us.”

Meanwhile, Union Minister Smriti Irani termed the Congress leaders’ visit to victim’s family in Hathras, a ‘political gimmick’ with no intention of seeking justice.

While speaking to media Irani said, “People are aware of Congress’ tactics and that is why they ensured a historic win for BJP in 2019 polls. People understand that their (Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi) visit to Hathras is for their politics and not for justice to the victim.”

The 19-year-old Dalit woman, who was brutally gang-raped by four upper caste men, succumbed to her injuries at Delhi’s Safdarjung hospital on September 29.
