Rahul Gandhi’s model of women empowerment? FIR filed against Congress MLA Johari Lal Meena for raping a widow in Rajasthan

Since last few weeks Rahul Gandhi is blabbering throughout the nation that he will ensure “NYAY” to women but time and again, women are facing ANYAY (injustice) at the hands of Congress leaders. In a fresh incident of violence against women, a Congress MLA from Rajgarh, Rajasthan named Johari Lal Meena has allegedly raped a widow women several times.

After this incident grabbed the attention of the public, an FIR has been filed against the Congress leader Johari Lal Meena under section 376 (punishment for rape) of the Indian Penal Code in a local court. It was said that the victim, who is a widow, had first met Congress MLA Meena couple of years ago. Since then Meena had paid several visits to the widow’s home.

One day, the Congress MLA Meena took the woman to a temple town of Mehndipur Balaji promising her to take her to a doctor. But he allegedly made her unconscious by giving some medicines and then raped her. Business Standard reported “Before dropping her back to the village, he also blackmailed her with a video he had made of the incident. He threatened to make the clip public if she dared to make a complaint against him. On March 24, he forced her to visit his home and raped her again”.

ANI reported that “A case has been registered against Congress MLA from Rajgarh, Johari Lal Meena, under Section 376 of the IPC for allegedly raping a woman repeated times. More details awaited”.

This is not the first time where the Congress leaders or the party was caught in such an embarrassing situation. Couple of days ago the National Spokesperson of Congress party Priyanka Chaturvedi resigned from the party after the men who misbehaved with her were reinstated into party.

Now the millions of Indian women are asking Rahul Gandhi whether this is his model of women empowerment.
