Congress gives ticket to an alleged ‘rapist’; Woman-member objecting thrashed

A senior Congress party worker protested on the ticket being given a person she claimed was a “rapist”. As soon as she said so, a gang of men thrashed her in a shocking video which has surface on social media.

In the Deoria district of Uttar Pradesh, Congress has given ticket to Mukund Bhaskar Mani Tripathi for the bypolls. Tara Yadav, a Congress worker, apparently protested the move and claimed the ticket was given to a member who is a “rapist.” As soon she said so in front of All India Congress Committee (AICC) secretary Sachin Naik, she was given a beating.

“I appealed to AICC secretary Sachin Naik to give ticket to someone with a good character instead of a rape accused as it would spoil the party’s image. Upon expressing my concern, someone attacked me from behind and many other workers began to beat me up,” she said.

The terrible thrashing she received made Tara Yadav’s lips to swell up and her jewellery lost in the scuffle. She urged the Congress leadership, especially Priyanka Gandhi to take action—more so since the latter was at the forefront in hugging the family of victim of Hathras victim and was projecting herself as championing of women’s rights and safety.

“Our party leaders have been fighting rapists in Hathras and at the same time a rapist is being given the ticket in Deoria. What kind of message does this give to the nation? I rquest the leaders to withdraw the ticket and give it to any other eligible candidate. Giving a ticket to Mukund Bhaskar is unjust to womanhood,” she added.

Tara said she has filed a FIR against the party workers who thrashed her during the meeting.

The Congress leaders are yet to comment.
