He further said if these two governments end up doing the same, he will go there to "fight for justice"
The BJP today hit out at Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and

Priyanka Gandhi Vadra

for their "selective outrage" in cases of atrocities against women as it questioned their "silence" over the alleged rape and killing of a six-year-old girl in Punjab.
"The pretentious Congress has not said a word. The tweet-friendly Rahul Gandhi has not tweeted on the

Hoshiarpur

incident. There has been no outrage. And no picnic either," said

Nirmala Sitharaman

.
Union minister

Prakash Javadekar

too slammed the two Congress leaders and asked why had they not paid a visit to the family of the victim in Punjab yet.
