Rahul Gandhi on Thursday took a dig at the ruling party over the LPG cylinder price hike by sharing on Twitter an erstwhile UPA era picture of BJP leaders protesting against cooking gas price hike.

Before polling began in the national capital at 8 am today, Kejriwal while urging people to step out and vote, suggested that women should discuss it with men whom it would be better to vote for.

The video later goes on to compare Akhtar's comment with a funny scene from the film 'Bunty Aur Babli' in which protestors are clueless about their demands and reason for demonstration.

Addressing a poll rally in Jharkhand on Thursday, Gandhi had said Prime Minister Narendra Modi had launched 'Make in India' but nowadays all one can see is 'Rape in India'.

"I had said that Narendra Modi had said there will be 'Make in India'. We thought there will be 'Make in India' in newspapers but we look at newspapers today and see 'rape in India'. Rape incidents are happening everywhere'', said Rahul Gandhi

Union Minister Smriti Irani, who defeated the Congress leader in his home bastion Amethi in 2019 Lok Sabha poll, said: "This is the first time in history that a leader is giving a clarion call that Indian women should be raped. Is this Rahul Gandhi's message to the people of the country?"

Irani was speaking in the Lok Sabha on the Unnao rape issue when she was interrupted by two Congress MPs who apparently got up from their seats and ran towards the Well of the House.

The debate in the Lower House comes after all four accused in the rape and murder of a veterinarian in Telangana were killed in an encounter with the police when the accused tried to escape while being taken to the crime spot, police said on Friday morning.

Days after his video of "misbehaving" with the brother of a murder victim went, Prashant Sharma was on Thursday removed as the District Magistrate of Amethi.

Gopal Kanda on Friday stated that he along with other Independent candidates offered BJP unconditional support to form government in Haryana. Kanda is facing trial in the suicide case of Geetika Sharma, a former air hostess with his airline -- MDLR. The girl's mother had also committed suicide.
