Rahul attacks PM Modi after poll shows India leads Syria in rapes

Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi after a poll showed that India is the most dangerous country for women in the world.

Rahul Gandhi ridiculed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his exercise clips video and hinted that like Nero fiddling when Rome burned, the PM “tiptoes around his garden making yoga videos” even as the situation for women in India goes from bad to worse.


According to a poll of global experts, India is the world’s most dangerous country for women due to the high risk of sexual violence and being forced into slave labour.

The Congress president was referring specifically to a Thomson Reuters Foundation survey of 550 experts, released today. The survey ranks India as more dangerous for women than war-torn Afghanistan and Syria, which came in second and third place, respectively.

The only Western nation in the top 10 was the United States, which ranked joint third when respondents were asked where women were most at risk of sexual violence, harassment and being coerced into sex.
