PM Modi hopeful of fruitful visit to Sweden and UK

In the wake of this state of affairs, 49 retired civil servants have called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi to act in this "moment of existential crisis" by fast-tracking the prosecution of the perpetrators of the rapes.

Following is the text of Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi's departure statement prior to his visit to Sweden and the United Kingdom. "We hope that by the time you arrive [in the UK], you have sufficiently addressed these matters and implemented law and order such that justice and humanity can reign supreme", the letter adds.

Modi also inaugurated the "Van Dhan Yojana", which aims at empowering tribal communities, and dedicated the Bhanupratappur-Gudum railway line to the nation by flagging off a train between Dalli Rajhara and Bhanupratappur. A week later, her raped and battered body was recovered.

"In both cases, Prime Minister, it is your party which is in power".

The Prime Minister maintained that the issue of regional imbalance could be resolved through various types of connectivity like road, railway, air and information technology.

The former Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh was often lampooned - by a number of commentators, including myself - for the resolute silence he maintained on a number of issues, including those concerning charges of corruption against several of his ministerial colleagues.

In the Unnao case, a BJP lawmaker has been booked on various charges, including rape.

"I want to make these districts not only "abhilashi" (aspirational) but also "mahtvakanshi" (ambitious) so that they emerge as a development model", he said.

"Any attempt to rewrite history, erase history will not work", he said. "This is all because of Babasaheb Ambedkar", he said. "No one has done more in the name of Ambedkar than the Congress", he said.

The Jammu and Kashmir government has appointed two public prosecutors in the case, both Sikhs, to ensure "neutrality". "The person, the party and the government that look at rape through the prism of class and religion have to be criticised", he said.

We spoke then as we do now, as citizens who have no affiliations with any political party nor adherence to any political ideology other than the values enshrined in our Constitution.

Singhvi demanded the sacking of Jammu and Kashmir Forest Minister Lal Singh and Industries Minister Chander Prakash Ganga, who he alleged instigated the protests in Jammu in support of the accused.
