Congress march to Hathras: Rahul Gandhi falls amid melee on Yamuna Expressway

Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra were stopped on their way to Hathras to meet the family of the victim who was allegedly gang-raped and murdered in Hathras. They were taken away by the police to Buddh International Circuit guest house after a scuffle broke between Congress leaders and police. When Rahul asked why was he being stopped as he wanted to go to Hathras alone and not intending to violate Section 144, the police told him that they were arresting him under Section 188 IPC for violation of an order. Rahul Gandhi also fell to the ground after he was pushed by the UP police.

Gandhi’s proceeded on foot after their cars were stopped by authorities. “Since our cars have been stopped, we will walk down to Hathras as we want to meet the victim’s family. We want to express our condolences to the family,” Priyanka Gandhi had said. Priyanka Gandhi said her party will continue to fight till women’s safety is ensured in Uttar Pradesh and unless the government is shaken and woken up, it will not do anything on this front. She said, “UP CM Adityanath would have to do something for women’s safety. We will continue to fight till the time he does something.”
