Reports stated that there was major uproar in the lok sabha on friday, as bjp leaders raised slogans in the house over a remark made by india NATIONAL CONGRESS' target='_blank' title='congress-Latest Updates, Photos, Videos are a click away, CLICK NOW'>congress leader rahul gandhi at a rally he held in Jharkhand, and demanded an apology. Meanwhile on thursday, rahul had slammed the narendra modi government on many issues including demonetisation, economic slowdown and the employment rate being at a 45 year high. Perhaps the comment which became controversial was: “Modi claims 'Beti Bachao Beti Padhao'... but from whom to save the girls? Girls have to be protected from bjp MLAs. You might have heard 'Make in India' but it has become 'rape in India'.”
Apparently protesting in the lok sabha the next day, women and Child Development minister smriti irani said, “It’s happened for the first time in history of india that gandhi family's son is saying “come and rape women in India.” Several other MPs also gathered around smriti irani, raising slogans for rahul to apologise with “Rahul gandhi, maafi maango!” and “We want justice!”
Smriti told "It is condemnable that for his politics, he (Rahul Gandhi) has used the sensitive issue of women’s rape". Moreover the leaders continued creating a ruckus, as Speaker om birla made no effort to bring the situation under control. Apparently after some time, DMK mp kanimozhi tried to clarify that rahul Gandhi’s comments were not an invitation to others to come and rape indian women, but he was merely drawing attention to the rising incidence of rapes in the country. kanimozhi said "The PM has always been saying it has to be Make in india so that india flourishes… We respect that. What rahul gandhi said was that situation in india has changed. He said Make in india is not happening, and on the other hand, rapes are happening".
