Mumbai, Sep 15 : At a time when the Narendra Modi government made a strong pitch for Women’s Reservation Bill, Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi has said empowerment of women alone will make the country empowered.
Addressing the national council meet of Mahila Congress, he said the real progress of the country was possible when the empowerment of women would take place.
Gandhi also accused the RSS of ignoring the women power. In RSS, they have no place for women while the Congress has given a woman Prime Minister, he said.
“The Congress has a different ideology and as a Congress worker, I can compromise with other ideologies but cannot compromise with the ideology of the BJP and the RSS. This is a big question for us — what is the difference between Gandhi’s Congress’, Godse’s, and Savarkar’s ideologies,” he said.
