New Delhi: As Congress chief led a midnight march here last night to protest the Kathua and Unnao minor rape cases, his sister Priyanka Vadra got shoved by some in a chaotic crowd, prompting her to ask people to think about the cause for which they had assembled there.

“Think about the cause for which you have come here,” she said.

Her husband Robert Vadra, who was also present in the protest march to the India Gate, said the country needs a change where women could feel safe.

Congress chief Rahul Gandhi led a midnight march to the India Gate here last night to protest the Kathua and Unnao minor rape cases and said it’s time for to walk the talk on (save the girl child).

Amid slogans against the and the Prime Minister during the march, Gandhi said the women of the country are afraid to go out today and the government must ensure their safety.

“We are here against crimes being committed against women, against rapes, violence and murder and the government must act on this. This is a national issue and not a political one,” Gandhi said at the march in the heart of the national capital.

The Congress leaders present at the protest march to the India Gate, which in the past has seen a huge protest in the Nirbhaya rape case, included Ahmed Patel, Ghulam Nabi Azad, Salman Khurshid, Ashok Gehlot, Ajay Maken, Sushmita Dev, Haroon Yusuf, Randeep Surjewala and Ambika Soni.
