Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday met the family members of the Dalit victims who were beaten up by cow protection vigilantes a few days back in Gujarat's Rajkot district. Announcing a Rs. 5 lakh assistance to the victims, he assured them of justice. The victims were assaulted, allegedly by 'Gau Rakshaks' for skinning a cow carcass.
Mr. Gandhi said, "Modiji talks about Gujarat model, but whoever opposes this model is attacked. Those who are weak and powerless have no voice in Modiji's Gujarat. Anyone who demands education and fights against big corporates is suppressed here. Those who raise their voice against corporates are crushed."
"It's a fight between two ideologies: one is of Mahatma Gandhi and Sardar Patel and another one of RSS, Golwalkar and Modi's ideology," he said.
