Ms. Gandhi would not celebrate her birthday today amid concerns over women’s safety across the country, news agency PTI reported on Sunday quoting sources.
Last week, a rape survivor was burnt alive in Uttar Pradesh’s Unnao by five men when she was on her way to court, triggering widespread outrage. She died later at a hospital in Delhi. In another incident that shocked the nation, a young veterinarian was raped, murdered and then set on fire in Telangana. The rise in the number of crimes against women prompted sharp reactions from leaders across party lines.
Several Congress leaders posted birthday greetings for their party chief, praising her for her leadership skills. “Best Wishes to @INCIndia President Smt. Sonia Gandhi on her birthday. I wish her good health & long life. Her leadership qualities, commitment to the party, vision for development, & concern for marginalized shall always be the guiding force for us,” former Karnataka chief minister Siddaramaiah wrote on Twitter.
