Rahul Gandhi gave an earful to the media who surrounded him and began questioning him after his visit to the Dalit family in Sunped village of Haryana who lost two children in a deliberately set fire by upper caste miscreants.
“You call it a photo opportunity? This is a case of tragic death of two little children; a case of the weak being put down in this country and you think this is a photo opportunity? Your comment is an insult – not to me but to these people! I will visit such people – again and again” Rahul thundered at the person who had made the comment.
Vaibhav, who was two-and-a-half years old, and his sister, 11-month-old Divya, died on the spot after the attackers allegedly poured petrol and set the house ablaze. Rekha, their mother is critical in the hospital with 70% burns.
Villagers have blocked the Ballabgarh-Faridabad highway demanding the arrest of all the accused in the incident. Haryana Police have arrested four persons in connection with the incident.
