New Delhi: The death of the victim of the brutal Hathras gang rape saw Twitter erupt in protest over the crime and the safety of women.

Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi led the way as she lambasted Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath over the series of rapes that have taken place in the state in a short span of time.

Actor Kangana Ranaut, too, rages against the rape of the 19-year-old casualty of sexual assault—and demands wants drastic action against the assailants.

More than the violent crime, political activist Kavita Krishnan seems interested in the caste factor here.

Congress leader Milind Deora looked at the gangrape in the light of the recent incident in Madhya Pradesh where a police officer assaulted his wife. No country for women?

And here’s Rukshmanii Kumari, Congress, on the Rohit Shetty of Uttar Pradesh’s ‘Bollywood’.

Onto other subjects: In response to Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman’s comment in The Indian Express that the Congress should “fight us in the House”, Congress veteran Kapil Sibal had this to say — you don’t want to miss out on it.

Former executive director of Amnesty International India Aakar Patel makes a harsh allegation against the government after the human rights organisation suspended its India operations citing government interference.

Does New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristoff have the effrontery to suggest that the Modi government is heading for the “dustbin of history’’?

Punjab chief minister Capt. Amarinder Singh launches an attack on the farm bills with military precision.

Meanwhile PM Modi attacks the Opposition for opposing certain issues. Isn’t that what it’s supposed to do?

Looks like someone is playing around with Swaraj India President Yogendra Yadav’s Twitter account. Careful now….

National General of the BJP Kailash Vijayvargiya received quite the welcome when he landed in Kolkata airport. Need we remind people that Covid-19 still exists?

And US President Donald Trump had another quip on the “lamestream media” and his Nobel Peace Prize nomination.
