Save the daughter from BJP Leaders, Ministers, and MLAs : Rahul Gandhi
Bhopal. Taking a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’ slogan, Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday said that the slogan should be changed to “Beti Padhao, BJP ke netaonse, mantrionse, MLAs se beti bachao (save the daughter from BJP leaders, ministers, and MLAs) in the wake of recent allegations of sexual harassment against BJP ministers as reported in Indian Express.
Addressing a rally in Sheopur district of poll-bound Madhya Pradesh, the Congress president said, “Modiji ne bahot accha nara diya tha Beti Padhao Beti Bachao. Narendra Modi ke mantri par sawal uthaya jaata hai. Uttar Pradesh me BJP ka MLA balatkar karta hai rape karta hai.
Pradhan Mantri ke muh se ek shabd nahi nikalta (Modiji had given a good slogan Beti Padhao Beti Bachao. Narendra Modi’s minister is questioned. A BJP MLA in Uttar Pradesh commits rape but the prime minister does not utter a word).”
Gandhi was taking a dig at the prime minister over the allegations of sexual misconduct against Union minister M J Akbar and the rape charges against BJP’s Uttar Pradesh MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar.
“Not only the PM but even the (BJP) chief ministers in Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh did not say a word,” Gandhi said. He said the slogan should be tweaked to read “Beti Padhao BJP ke netaonse, mantrionse, MLAs se beti bachao (save the daughter from BJP leaders, ministers and MLAs).
