This comes on the same day when Congress President Rahul Gandhi questioned the "silence" of Modi in the two alleged rape incidents in Kathua and Unnao. Agarwal, however, did not explain as to why Prime Minister Narendra Modi, a self-proclaimed champion of women's rights, has been silent on the issue. "Our daughters will get justice", he said at an event to inaugurate the B R Ambedkar memorial here. India wants to know: when?, Gandhi tweeted.

In Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua, an eight-year-old girl was repeatedly gangraped and later murdered while in Uttar Pradesh's Unnao a teenager has accused a BJP MLA of raping her and the UP government of inaction on her complaint. The government's slogan of "Beti Bachao (save the girl child) " has turned into "betion ko BJP se bachaon", said Congress leader Randeep Surjewala. "We had said this before as well, that women and children are in danger in your government", Azad was quoted as saying.

After the PM Modi's statement the two BJP leaders Lal Singh, Chander Prakash, who supported Kathua rape accused by participating a rally, submitted their resignation to the state party chief.
