New Delhi: Union Minister Smriti Irani on Friday approached the Election Commission of India (ECI) to seek strong action against Rahul Gandhi over his derogatory remark, ‘rape in India’.
“It is with a sense of outrage that the women Members of the Parliament from BJP today approached the ECI to take the strongest action possible against Rahul Gandhi. He has used rape as a political weapon to settle scores with Narendra Modi,” Irani said after her meeting with the poll body.
Irani slammed Rahul for he dared to make rapes a political tool. “We have said this before that crime against women should not be politicised. Rahul Gandhi dared to make rapes a political tool. We have requested the Election Commission to take action,” said Irani.
