Zero tolerance on violence against women; Rahul Gandhi

Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday said that there should be zero tolerance on violence against women in the country, adding that the Women Reservation Bill will be passed in Parliament if Congress comes to power in the coming Lok Sabha polls.

While addressing a women’s convention on the occasion of International Women’s Day in Jeypore city, Gandhi also admired the “fighting spirit” of women and urged people to recommit themselves to break barriers that hinder the path to equality.

“Fight for your space and don’t consider yourself less than anyone,” he said.

He also said that while around eight women are getting raped every day, only seven victims are getting justice per year.

“If Congress forms the government in Odisha, girls will get free education,” he added.

The Congress president is slated to address a public meeting in the city later in the day.
