Punjab horror: BJP slams Rahul, Priyanka Gandhi over 6-yr-old's rape-murder case

A political war of words broke out over the alleged rape and murder of the 6-year-old child of a migrant labourer in Punjab.

The Bharatiya Janata Party cited the reaction of Congress leaders to a similar crime in Uttar Pradesh's Hathras.

While Nirmala Sitharaman said that rapes shouldn't be politicised, her colleague in the Union Cabinet, Prakash Javadekar questioned why Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi hadn't visited the victim's family in Punjab, like Hathras.

Responding to the attacks, Rahul Gandhi tweeted that the governments in Congress-ruled Punjab and Rajasthan are not denying rape or blocking justice.

Farmers 'running out of patience', want resolution today

As the fifth round of talks is underway between the government and farmer leaders on December 05 at 2 pm, protesting farmers said they are running out of patience and today's talks will be the last. The primary demand of the farmers is the rollback of agricultural reforms which they have termed as "black laws". "The government is repeatedly extending the meetings. All of the organisations have decided unanimously that today is the last day of discussions," said one of the protesting farmers stationed at Tikri border (Delhi-Haryana). Farmers are adamant about their demands and said they will not be content with amendments, and want complete rollback of the laws. "We want complete rollback of the laws. If the government doesn't accept our demand, we will continue our agitation," said Harjinder Singh Tanda, Punjab chief of Azad Kisan Sangharsh Committee. Sanyukt Kisan Morcha's president Rampal Singh went one step ahead by saying that nothing but the rollback of the farm laws will be discussed in today's meeting.
