Bhartiya Janata Party Mahila Morcha National President Viyaya Rahatkar while severely castigating the atrocity meted against a female worker from National Students Union of India (NSUI), said women and girls are not safe in Congress. She said the silence of AICC President Rahul Gandhi on the issue is raising several questions. Bharatiya Janata Party Mahila Morcha National President Vijaya Rahatkar, who reached Raipur on Tuesday, was give a rousing welcome by the activists of state BJP Mahila Morcha on Tuesday. Hundreds of BJP Mahila Morcha workers took out a massive bike-rally from Telibandha Marine Drive, which culminated at Anupam Garden while passing through Netaji Chowk, Nagar Nigam square, Budhapara chowk, Lakhenagar chowk to Rajkumar College to welcome the Mahila Morcha National President. The rally was given rousing welcome at different junctions.

Talking to media persons on her arrival to Raipur, Vijaya Rahatkar said without empowering the ‘Matri Shakti’, it is not possible to social upgradation of the society. Now when the Matri Shakti is working in political arena, their safety and security should be the prime concern of the respective political parties. Starting from the infamous ‘Tandoor case’, there had been many instances in the Congress party, which has raised several questions on women’s safety within Congress. It seems the Congress uses women for political gains as a part of vote-bank politics only. The BJP Mahila Morcha National President demanded a high level impartial enquiry into the incident which had taken place against the NSUI worker from Chhattisgarh. She said pride of daughters cannot by a subject of politics but it is highly unfortunate that the Congress rakes up issues of women only when it suits it. In this issue the Congress by stating that it carrying out internal enquiry is trying to hush up the matter and there is very scanty hope that the girl concerned will get justice.

Rahatkar said whenever Matri Shakti takes a pledge, it has brought prosperity to the society. This time also with the blessings of Matri Shakti, the BJP will again regain power for the fourth consecutive time. Bharatiya Janata Party State President Dharamlal Kaushik, who was also present on the occasion said the atmosphere in the state is favourable for BJP and every worker including that of Mahila Morcha are committedly working for ensuring the win of the party. Kaushik while commenting on the gherao staged by Congress, said the gherao was completely unsuccessful. He said the Congress is gradually losing its political hold and in order to maintain its presence it does such kinds of gimmicks.

He said the Congress is continuously trying to create an atmosphere in its favour but the grass-root level working by the BJP has made a strong place into the hearts of people and despite all its efforts the Congress is going to fail. He said during this ongoing election year the Congress will be carrying many kinds of dramatics. He said the BJP government at the centre and state had worked for the upliftment of last person of the society and that will ensure its win.
