Rahul and Priyanka both individually request the protesters to behave accordingly and maintain the law and order. He also request to clean the road and give space to their vehicle so that they can reach Hathras as soon as possible and render thier condolences to the family.
Randeep Surjewala said “The BJP is a coward and Yogi Adityanath is timid one. If demand for justice and render condolences to victim’s family is a crime then including shri Rahul and Priyanka all the party workers and leaders are criminal and do this crime again and again. “
Congress MP Shashi Tharoor, who is also headed towards Hathras, has tweeted: Huge crowds milling at 24 Akbar Road as over fifty MPs gathered to travel to meet the family of the Hathras Case victim. It is entirely appropriate for people of conscience to seek to express their solidarity in the face of such atrocities. Let us hope the UP Govt behaves sensibly.
