BJP Disrupted Parliament, Its Fast is a Farce: Shetti

"He will be defeated in both the constituencies", the former chief minister added. "I am against any kind of violence against women and children".

Guwahati: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP from Assam RP Sharma on Friday called for a public execution of the accused in the Unnao gangrape case that involves party MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar.

Maneka Gandhi, the minister for women and child development, said her ministry planned to propose the death penalty for the rape of children younger than 12. "You see their plan?"

Goenkars Against PDA (GAP) threatened to take morcha to the house of Vijai Sardesai, the Town and Country Planning Minister, in Margao and stage a dharna there if he does not respond to them and listen to their grievances.

Opposition leader Rahul Gandhi held a candlelit vigil at India Gate in New Delhi, the same site where thousands of people demonstrated in 2012 against a brutal gang-rape in the capital.

Talking to reporters, Prasad said that while the entire fast by Congress was a farce engineered by party President Rahul Gandhi, today's fast by the BJP, in contrast, was to protest over the shameful acts of the Congress and its allies who have denied the government the opportunity to talk about various issues being faced by the nation for almost a month now. They (the two ministers) too were misguided.

Her husband Robert Vadra said the country needs a change where women could feel safe.
