Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Thursday said justice should be done in the Bilkis Bano case, and accused the government of giving hollow slogans of ‘Beti Bachao’.
“They give hollow slogans like Beti Bachao, and save rapists. Its a question of the rights and dignity of women. Bilkis Bano should be given justice,” Rahul Gandhi said.
Eleven men who were sentenced to life imprisonment in the Bilkis Bano gangrape case of 2002 were released from Godhra sub-jail on August 15 after a panel set up by the Gujarat government approved their application for remission of the sentence.
