Union Minister Smriti Irani on Friday registered a complaint to the Election Commission (EC) against Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on his “Rape in India” remark at a rally in poll-bound Jharkhand. A BJP delegation comprising Irani, Locket Chatterjee, Saroj Pandey, Deboshri Chaudhary and Sonal Mansingh reached the EC office late in the evening.
Targetting the Narendra Modi-led NDA government at the Centre over the incidents of rape, Rahul Gandhi on Thursday had said that, “Modi claims ‘Beti Bachao Beti Padhao’… but from whom to save the girls? Girls have to be protected from BJP MLAs. You might have heard ‘Make in India’ but it has become ‘rape in India’.” He was addressing a rally in Godda.
