During today’s Vijay Diwas celebrations, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra tore up the “anti-feminist BJP government” for not mentioning former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi today marks the 50th anniversary of India’s victory over Pakistan in 1971.
Rahul Gandhi, the brother of Mrs. Gandhi Vadra, was similarly harsh; Lok Sabha MP, Indira Gandhi, said her grandmother “took 32 bullets for the country (he was shot dead in 1984) but his name was not even mentioned in a government event”.
Indira Gandhi was the head of the ruling Congress government during the 1971 war.
“Our first and only female Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi, is leaving the anti-woman BJP government’s Vijay Diwas celebrations. This is on the 50th anniversary of the day she led India to victory and liberated Bangladesh …” Ms Gandhi Vadra tweeted.
“Narendra Modi ji … women do not believe in your deception. Your supportive attitude is unacceptable. It is time you started giving women rights,” she said.
…G, women will not believe your stupidity. Your supportive attitude is unacceptable. It’s time to start giving women rights. 2/2

Ms Gandhi Vadra, especially in UP, is at the forefront of the Congress’ responsibility, where she points to the BJP’s record on women’s protection and the fact that “all women should be exploited”.
