After Cong, BJP lawmakers seen relishing snacks during fast”

Meanwhile, BJP spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi mounted another attack at the Congress, citing that Jammu Bar Association president BS Slathia, who spearheaded the protest against police probe in the Kathua rape case, was Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad's polling agent in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls. "There are some people who want to politicise such incidents, but as a woman, I believe and it is my request that victim-shaming should not be done", she said.

Congress spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi noted that the Kathua and Unnao incidents can not be termed as "normal cases" and said these have shamed the nation.

"This proves what kind of dirty politics is being played in Jammu and Kashmir", she said.

A video clipping of the two relishing on sandwiches and chips went viral on social media and was broadcast by television channels, even as embarrassed state BJP leaders kept mum.

In a seemingly coordinated move, Modi's sharp condemnation of Kathua and Unnao incidents at the inauguration of Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar memorial here was followed by BJP's two ministers - Lal Singh and Chander Prakash - submitting their resignations to the state unit party chief Sat Sharma.

But still, these issues do not seem appropriate enough to be addressed by our very own Prime Minister who calls himself 'Pradhan Sevak (Prime Servant)' of the country.

Pilot alleged the government did not act responsibly when violence broke out during Bharat Bandh last week in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra and other states.

"When the girl came back on June 21, police recorded her statement in front of the magistrate, where she did not take the name of the BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar". Where are the BJPs fierce, vocal women leaders?

The party also tweeted, "The BJP must be told that it can not belittle the fight of women for equality and dignity, simply because its ideological mentor, the RSS, does not believe in these ideas".
