Congress plans stir to 'expose' BJP: State unit chief Amit Chavda

Congress President Rahul Gandhi led a midnight candlelight march on Thursday in protest against crimes committed against women and girls in India.

"It is a protest to ensure that a government blinded by political power does something about the situation", he said.
He said Modi's silence over the rising atrocities against women was "unacceptable" and that India was waiting for him to speak up.
