“Those who raped a five-month pregnant woman and killed her three-year-old daughter were released during ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’. What message is being given to the women of the country by those who peddle lies about ‘Nari Shakti’?” Rahul Gandhi said in a tweet in Hindi.

“Prime Minister ji, the entire country is seeing the difference between your words and deeds,” he said.

Attacking the PM, Priyanka Gandhi asked if the release of the criminals convicted for the gang-rape of a pregnant woman and killing of her daughter by the BJP government as well as their welcome in front of the camera, not the height of injustice and insensitivity.

“Narendra Modi ji, respect for women only in speeches? Women are asking,” she said.
