After fury over alleged rape and murder of nine year-old Dalit Girl in Delhi, Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi Gandhi met the parents . After meeting them he said  that their tears speak of only one thing, that their daughter has the right to justice. “And I will be with them on this road to justice. My responsibility is to help the victim’s family.”

Taking note of  the gruesome incident , the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) took suo motu cognisance of matter . NCPCR wrote to DCP South West, asking him to furnish detailed report within 48 hours.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that there is a need to improve the law and order situation in the national capital, adding that he will meet the victim’s family on Wednesday.

“The murder of a nine-year-old innocent in Delhi after subjecting her to brutality is very shameful. There is a need to improve the law and order situation in Delhi. The culprits should be given capital punishment at the earliest, the chief minister said in a tweet in Hindi.

Congress General Secretary Uttar Pradesh East, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said that Shah went to Uttar Pradesh to “distribute certificates” but was “unable to handle his own responsibility”. She was referring to Shah’s visit to Uttar Pradesh earlier this week during which he praised the Yogi Adityanath government for taking the state to the “top spot” in law and order.

From Hathras to Nangal, there is “jungle raj”, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra alleged. The Delhi Police comes under the Union Home Ministry.

“The home minister, who is responsible for maintaining law and order in Delhi, had gone to Uttar Pradesh to distribute certificates but is unable to handle his own responsibility,” the Congress general secretary said.

Tagging a media report on the incident, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said in a tweet in Hindi, “A Dalit’s daughter is also the daughter of the country.”

TMC national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee also trained his guns on Shah and alleged that the law and order situation in this country is in shambles “A 9-year-old girl was allegedly raped and forcibly cremated in the national capital, right under the watch of Mr @AmitShah! The law and order situation in this country is in shambles,” Banerjee tweeted.

In another tweet he wrote, The law and order situation in this country is in shambles. Recently appointed Delhi CP Rakesh Asthana who is also a close aide of Mr. AmitShah – already failing his duties? Or does his appointment mean taking care of other businesses?!

Meanwhile , TMC Rajya Sabha MP, Derek O’Brien stated that he will shave his head if Union Home Minister Amit Shah comes to Parliament on Wednesday and makes a statement on the Delhi rape case. Brien further accused the home minister of running away from Pegasus.
