Sonia condoles rape victim s death assures fitting punishment
Congress chief Sonia Gandhi on Saturday assured swift and fitting punishment to the perpetrators of the Delhi gang-rape, whose victim passed away in a Singapore hospital early this morning.
In a televised message to the nation, Sonia said her (the victim’s) courage and indomitable spirit will never die.
“It deepens our determination to battle the pervasive and shameful attitude towards women,” the UPA chairperson said.
She appealed to the protesters to remain calm, saying “as a woman and mother I understand how you feel”.
“The whole country shares the grief, the voice of the protesters has been heard. She will get justice,” Sonia said.
She added that her heart goes out to the bereaved family.
“The fight will not go in vain,” Sonia said.
