Congress president Rahul Gandhi observed a candlelight vigil on the midnight intervening Thursday (April 12) and Friday (April 13) at the India Gate in New Delhi to register his protest against the growing incidents of crime against women. "Join me in a silent, peaceful, candlelight vigil at India Gate at midnight tonight to protest this violence and demand justice", Rahul Gandhi on Twitter.

Meanwhile, in a tweet, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti vowed stringent action against perpetrators of the Kathua incident.

Somewhere a child, a woman is raped, killed and we want that the government should resolve this.

Rahul Gandhi was protesting against the "silence" of Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the rapes and to seek justice for the victims.

"It is a national issue and not a political one". With the crowds making a rush towards Congress leaders, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra looked a bit miffed with their behaviour.

Azad said the Modi government was sleeping and those facing the biggest threat were the daughters of the country during the current regime. Although Rahul Gandhi himself did not mention elections, Congress party acolytes are relishing the prospect that some of the outpouring of support from Thursday night may linger until 2019.

Many were shouting slogans like "Modi Bhagao, Beti Bachao" as they held candles as a mark of protest. What happened at #Kathua is a crime against humanity. "India simply can not continue to treat its women the way it does", the Congress chief said in a tweet. It can not go unpunished.

A huge crowd gathered for the march, led by Gandhi, against the alleged rapes of minor girls in Unnao, Uttar Pradesh, and Kathua (Jammu and Kashmir), where slogans were raised against the Modi government. "The women of the country should feel safe", he said.

"What have we become if we allow politics to interfere with such unimaginable brutality perpetrated on an innocent child", he asked. Her body was found in the same area a week later and the autopsy revealed she had been sedated and repeatedly raped before her head was bashed in with a stone. BJP president Amit Shah joined his party colleagues in Karnataka to protest against the Congress's "disruptions" of Parliament.

"Those who are here to push around people must go home".
