“A few days ago I went to a farmer’s house in Awadh. He had five daughters and a son … A daughter was raped and the accused was the son of the village headman and the police refused to file a report.

He further said that Congress workers asked him to join the ‘fight against injustice’, “Today there is an injustice everywhere. The accused are being saved after committing crimes against women. The debts of big industrialists are forgiven. And the poor are made. ” Problem of face… Those fighting against injustice in the country will be considered cowardly in history.
Targeting the BJP-led government, the Congress leader underlined that the Indian economy had grown at a rapid pace during the UPA regime.
