It is very shameful for the President of one of the oldest political party to spread false information about the nation to defame it. The Congress President Rahul Gandhi in order to target the Modi Government always starts firing his guns without even paying heed to the nitty-gritty of the matter.
Yesterday the Congress President targeted PM Modi based on the survey conducted by the Thomson Reuters Foundation, which said that India is the world’s most dangerous country for women. The Congress President without even investigating and analysing the claims started spreading the venom, that Prime Minister of the country is busy in doing Yoga, whereas the nation in terms of women safety is at the worst level.
While our PM tiptoes around his garden making Yoga videos, India leads Afghanistan, Syria & Saudi Arabia in rape & violence against women. What a shame for our country! https://t.co/Ba8ZiwC0ad

He doesn’t even look at the survey that it is conducted online only on the opinion of 548 experts on women’s issues including aid and development professionals, academics, health workers, policymakers, non-government organisation workers, journalists, and social commentators but not based on the facts and figures.
In response to our query – Reuters says -‘this was a perception poll based on experts’ opinions, not on data.’ So based on ‘perception’…India is declared dangerous and most unsafe nation of women. Any agenda? https://t.co/lg58yAgQjl

He doesn’t even notice that revelation in the survey India leads Afghanistan, Syria and Saudi Arabia in rape and violence against women is itself absurd statement as the countries that have been ranked after India in the survey have women who are not even allowed to speak in public.
Number of women in India: 640,000,000
Number of people surveyed to rank India the 'most dangerous country for women': 548
Number of Women from Indian Region : 43
Pakistan is not even in Top 5
Fiction in the name of survey is the new tool for propaganda. pic.twitter.com/M7scONrAyH

Even the National Commission for Women (NCW) has rejected the findings of the survey. National Commission for Women Chairperson Rekha Sharma rejected the survey report, claiming that the sample size was small and could not be representative of the whole country. Here’s the statement issued by the National Commission for Women:
How can the Congress President behave so immature and think that such a survey based on small sample size and views of somebody can represent the nation as big as India, with a population of approximately 1.3 billion? If the Congress President is so concerned about the women safety then why he hadn’t taken any action against the complaints made by a female member of the Congress party’s student body NSUI, who raised her voice against the NSUI president for demanding sexual favours in lieu of political posts. Why is he silent on the issue? Why no action is taken? Infact the Congress President is encouraging the rape accused within his own party.
In his hatred for PM Modi, the Congress President has stooped so low that he is defaming the nation. Is his concern only based on targeting Modi Government based on the surveys which don’t represent nation but not doing anything on ground. Infact, once Congress President himself has also said this country doesn’t run on surveys, So how come he started believing in such surveys now. Has the Congress President any answers?
When Oppose Modi campaign turns into an Oppose India campaign, this is bound to happen!
I always advise our unelectable President Shri Rahul Gandhi, hate Modi but please don't hate India ! But Team Dynasty doesn't listen!! https://t.co/yDhKHk8hBW
