"This is about our women". You can see people across parties have joined. Stating that both central and state governments had taken the issue of safety of women for granted, former Congress MP Unnao, Annu Tandon said: "the case in Unnao lends a face to many other victims across UP".

India is set to move faster in all fields as the NDA government has brought the country out of policy paralysis caused by the previous Congressgovernment, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi while formally inaugurating the 10th edition of the defence expo - DefExpo 2018 - at Thiruvidandai near Chennai on Thursday.

Congress leaders including Ahmed Patel, Ghulam Nabi Azad, Ambika Soni, Ashok Gehlot, Randeep Singh Surjewala and Sushmita Dev walked from the party headquarters at 24 Akbar Road to the India Gate along with hundreds of party workers holding candles. Numerous supporters protested for the dismissal of the Narendra Modi government from the Centre.

"I only want to say that the atrocities being committed against women, the government should something about it". "It is a sad state of affairs", said Maken.

The police had a hard time controlling the crowd (some of them were even drunk) as many had crossed over the barricades and even broke through them.

Production is expected to begin in August with filming in China and New Zealand for a March 27, 2020th release date. The live-action is based on that inspirational Chinese ballad and on the animated Disney classic.

The decision to march to India Gate came together late Thursday evening and confirmed via a Rahul Gandhi tweet: "Like millions of Indians my heart hurts tonight".

Congress President Rahul Gandhi, in a major step against the spate of gruesome crimes against women in the country, today held a midnight march from party headquarters to India Gate.

In Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua district, an 8-year-old was drugged, gang-raped and brutally murdered in January 2018. Taking to Twitter, Gandhi earlier said- "How can anyone protect the culprits of such evil?" What happened to Asifa at Kathua is a crime against humanity. It can not go unpunished. "What have we become if we allow politics to interfere with such unimaginable brutality perpetrated on an innocent child". A week later, her body was found in the same area.

"Those who are here to push around people must go home".

Meanwhile, in a tweet, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti vowed stringent action against perpetrators of the Kathua incident.
