Gandhi tonight visited Safdarjung Hospital to inquire about the condition of the 23-year-old victim, who is in a critical state, after Sunday night's incident, and sought "strictest possible measures" to ensure that there is no recurrence of such a barbaric crime.
Gandhi, who was at the hospital for about 15-20 minutes, talked to the doctors and met the victim's parents, according to Congress general secretary Janardan Dwivedi. Gandhi was told by the doctors that the girl was in a critical state, he said.
The Congress leader said in her letter to Dikshit that "such violence and criminality needs not only to be condemned, it calls for a concerted effort to fight it." In her letter to Shinde, the Congress president said "It is a shame for us, who are responsible for the security of our cities that a young woman can be raped in a moving bus in the capital of the country and flung on to the street."
Describing the incident as a "monstrous crime", Gandhi said this deserves not only universal condemnation but also the "Government's most urgent attention".
"It is imperative that the police and other agencies concerned are sensitised to the dangers that our daughters, sisters and mothers face everyday. The security agencies must be motivated, trained and equipped to deal with the menace. I hope you will initiate immediate action to remedy the situation," Gandhi told the Home Minister.
In the letter to Dikshit, Gandhi said, "It is a matter of shame that these incidents happen with painful regularity and that our daughters, sisters and mothers are unsafe in our Capital Delhi.... I would urge you to take whatever steps are necessary to undertake community action, to strengthen law and order and to step up vigilance to protect women." Gandhi told the Delhi chief minister that there was an "urgent need to demonstrate our sincerity and determination" and that "we are all horrified" over the incident.
She also assured Dikshit "You have my support and support of our party organisation in whatever efforts you need to take to curb the menace."
CIA-RAW are now trying to buy off India's nuclear forces by having Pranab Mukherjee give a presidential standard to an air force squadron where some of their relatives work and having him say that the corner stone of India's defence policy is an "effective deterrent" that can be used at any time, to keep India's nuclear forces from triggering the warheads. As I have said, since the enemy -- the United States -- holds India in slavery, it is meaningless to talk of 'deterring' the United States; the task is to destroy, not deter, the United States. Pranab Mukherjee and the entire Indian government work for the enforcement of the Anglo-American ownership of India: IndiasTraitorGovtAndMediaDOTblogspotDOTcom The outrage at the gang rape and brutalization of a girl in New Delhi and the incident itself has been engineered by RAW to divert attention from its trafficking of Indian children to be used a food: RAWsTraffickingOfIndianChildrenDOTblogspotDOTcom . There is a large and growing market for the meat of Indian children in certain countries. A large number of Indians in the Meerut area and elsewhere are employed in this industry -- the busting of "a 150-member gang, which allegedly used to slaughter abducted children, roast their bodies and eat them after failing to strike a handsome deal with child traffickers" was reported at : dailyDOTbhaskarDOTcom/article/UP-another-horror-nithari-like-vampires-exposed-in-meerut-2878885DOThtml . The plans for Walmart's entry into India include a vast expansion of this industry, setting up better and more efficient supply chains and processing plants within India; at present the children are taken out of India to be processed. If the reasons for India's nuclear forces not yet having triggered India's nuclear warheads are not technical but behavioral -- they don't yet feel ready to take a step of such enormity -- they are like Arjun at the beginning of the Mahabharat war. But like Arjun, they are instruments of India's legitimate ruler which is myself and I have clearly stated what I want done. To convince Arjun, Krishna showed him his 'Virat Roop'. My Virat Roop is the coast-to-coast destruction of the United States five years later that I have described: JoinIndiaWarOfIndependenceDOTblogspotDOTcom
Delhi police has enough personnel ensure security of the "leaders" and to their credit they were successful for the last so many year in that. Security and protection of the common man is only an after thought, which would be done based on the media/political pressure in individual cases if they have some personnel left over from the security details of the V and VVIPs. The cops should be made accountable to the public.
It's really horrible, but the politician now use this matter as there outfit.... they are accusing one another without considering this kind of outrageous events for future. they never can understand the problem of common people,
This is too late, and crocodile tears. Did you all notice, the PM or is office has not issued yet a strong statement- neither he visited. He was kept waiting for 'Madam' to act, before he has any say. Hope i am wrong. What a PM we have. He has made that chair a 'remotely controled' device. Do we expect him to improve the economy? Not possible. He did his job, lets not bring this party back to power, again. Even the one who committed the crime, feels ashamed- not our PM or his office. Only Women MPs are take lead- some politicizing it. Not seen the Delhi-South or north MP not expressing anguish- leading the protests! Its students who are on streets, not the political parties. Visibly in this case political protection is not there for this crazy-drugged-'inhumnas'. Else, political parties are waiting to play safe- if there are political people, then they can bargain????? i wonder where we are- insensitive and rubbish country- over-rates, no difference between Talibans- and our leaders.
How does the word shame sound in Italian, Sonia? Why blame the Delhi CM alone when it is YOU who have reduced her to an ineffectual, lazy sychophant! Sonia is the only worthy who does not know how things have been for women in Delhi for a long time. Not difficult to spot extreme worry for her own political life in this sham sympathy and shock she professes. If she has any shame left, let her boot out the CM and the union home minister for god's sake-- Sushil Kumar Shinde is a bonehead who is no better than Shivraj Patil. Let Sonia first rediscover her lost concience!
Wow what for a great beguling show by SoniaGandhi of meeting the raped girl.Now that Saint Sonia has met and touched the girl her all ailments,honor,self-respect.confidence,depression and despair will vanish !!!This woman doesn't miss any chance to cheat the people with such pefidious contrivances.Since this Govt has taken rule the crime and corruption has become almost highest in the world.Yesterday it was published by USA that within past ten years more than 123 Billion dollars in black money had been transfered to other banks from India and there is hardly any day we don't learn rapes and murders happeing around the country,especially big cities.There is increasing intolerance,antagonism and hatred among communities.Nation's security is jeopardized and nation's name nad the flag is being insulted by neighbouring countries.Most of the world has lost trust in India to invest.Only those companies and firms are interested which are confirmed corrupt.Sonia,Congress and MMSingh must go.
When the country's top politicians and political parties do not fear the judiciary or the CBI or ny other power, why should the JUGGI Chopdi walas should? The Cong President went to see and ask the howabouts of the victim of the Delhi Gang Rape that too in the night, with a caravan of exsorts. Why? She should hve been gone to the accused to find out what was the situations nd circumstances that made them to rape this victim, and they should have raped this italian mafia who sent this country to the stoe ages. Down with Sonia, and the entire congress chamchas. We need justice and for that we need AAM AADMI PARTY in POWER.... nothing else will sve this country... put all politicians behind the bars and the country will be a civilised one within no time under the leadrship of Arvind Kejriwal..... JAI HIND, DOWN WITH SONIA AND DOWN WITH CONGRESS...
Since arrival of Sonia in our politics Rape, Corruption, Terrorism increased , we can considered she is the one behind all these wrong going in India, she wants to destroy India the way British did, she is dangerous than Britsh.
it's shame for you italian model. People of indian will teach you lession on right time.
India is a resilient nation. Every time a rape, murder of mass murder happens, we show our anger through street protests, burn a few buses and effigies, get the media abuzz, politicians will visit the victims and show solidarity. Then back to business as usual - for both the common people, the rapists, the murderers, the politicians. Fundamentally we fail to realise that assault on another person, rape and murder are all driven by the same criminal mentality - need to dominate over other people's right to life. Every rapist can be a murderer, and every murderer a potential rapist, regardless of the cause. It is good that Sonia Gandhi considers Delhi gangrape a matter of shame. But when his part MLA in Gujarat threatens to shoot a tollgate attendant for no reason, and gets away with it, she is drawing a distinction between gangrape by a bus driver and attempt to murder by her cohorts. When you condone any crime which threatens another person's life, you condone all other crimes.

Desperate situations require desperate action.Lawmakers ,Judiciary and Police should swing into action .DEATH PENALTY in PUBLIC WITHIN ONE MONTH to the perpetrators of the heinous crime within a month.Anything less than hanging in public will not be enough to act as deterent .If law requires to be changed for this , change it in 2 days . SPS
Delhi police is either corrupt like their masters or incompetant. CM must quit
Root cause of all problems in India is our slow Judiciary System. Due to its inefficiency and corrupt nature no criminal hesitate to commit crime. In a was there is no feat in these criminals and that's the reason type of incidents happening.
It is shame, do you all know why there is no strong law against Rape because there was rape case going against Rahul. Can anyone go speak with the girl who accused Rahul for Rape.
Yes Sonia it is a shame that someone else other than you & Congress party is raping. You & your Italian Congress has been raping nation for the last so many years, that the country is almost dying now. You stop raping , others will too. Thank you for making our nation a shameless raping community.
It will continue until someone rapes Shiela Dixit, Sonia Gandhi, wife an daughters of Man Mohan Singh, Priyanka Gandhi. Then and then only the police and administration wake up. The political leadership is only concerned with FDI, GDP, hare market, hiking prices of gas, petroleum products and others. And some others like Mulayam Singh, Lalu, Paswan, Mayavathi, Karunanidhi are no more than prostitutes who do not mind to sleep with anyone who serves their interest. The communists, as usual, do not have any sense of direction and purpose, and are confused lot.
Not only rapist but their Father and Mother and friends also should be punished vigorously ( Only Jail ) who remains silent !!!!!!!! This type of action will have good effect on youth and help reduce drastically such crimes.
Ask her to shut her bloody mouth! Everyone knows he rules the country even though it is not on signed paper. Be it Sheila Dikshit or Sonia Gandhi, we want peace! You guys are part of the same system and bathed in the blood of politics. We don't care. Your SON-In-LAW calls us 'BANANA REPUBLIC' AND CLAIMS IT AS MEANING- AAM AADMI. Yes, we are one. Till today, we have not woken up, But one day when this same AAM AADMI comes into action you guys will not enjoy on our taxes and will suffer the worser condition than the raped girl in girl. DO REMEMBER IT!
There are hundred of cases all over India. Such type of crime always happens in isolated areas. The victim can not able to fight for long against these criminals. One of the option would be to allow them to have one gun / pistol which will definitely help them at any point of time. The gun license holder should be trained by the local police. It is high time for Govt to simplify Gun license for women applicant and promote them to have their own Gun. At present 10000:1 ratio of public vis-a-vis police can not protect our women from these criminals. Since our judicial system is a long process, it takes lot of time to give justice to the victim. Life sentence (till death) should be given to these criminals without any condition for appeal.
Sonia Gandhi ji,you are a woman.You should not act, but deliver the results.
I would urge our honorable PM to atleast speak on this occasion and make his presence felt for the country which he is presently heading. The Head of the State should directly speak on such occasion to the people of the country and assure them of the actions taken so far. Otherwise as usual another incident of such SHAME!!! will go down the books of history.
DEAR EDITOR, IT IS A GREAT SHAME FOR INDIA, FOR NOT IMPLEMENTING TOUGH RULES AND REGULATIONS TO PROTECT EVERY "GIR" "WOMEN" IN THE COUNTRY WHICH IS POLLUTED WITH "R A P I S T" ON EVERY STREETS OF INDIA. TO HANG A PERSON IS THE MOST WISE DECISION, FORGET INDIAN RULES AND REGULATIONS... EVERYONE IN INDIA IS CORRUPT.. LOOK.. AT THE FAITH OF THESE WONDERFUL GIRLS WHOSE LIFE IS DESTROY... WHY NOT DESTROY THE RAPIST AND THE LAW MAKERS.. DO IT FAST AND WORLD LAUGHS AT INDIA...
Sonia's gesture will give a lot of attention and seriousness to this issue, besides a political mileage. We as part of modern human civilization request her to give a small focus and empathy to Tamil women in Srilanka also, who are being given much more barbaric treatment and sexual harassment by Srilankan Army in a systemic manner, without anybody to question. Sinhala Police, Sinhala Army, Sinhala officers, Nobody is there to ensure their basic safety of them. If Sonia is really worried about the women's of the world, she has to ask her govt to stop supporting Genocidal regiment in Colombo.It is shame for Indians that Indian Govt is supporting and protecting Srilanka in all global forums and UN. India is also providing arms and training to the same Rapist Army. Fellow Indians are really moved by Delhi incident. We request them also look into the horror that Tamil women are facing every minute in their own houses in the name of army raids. Hope Indians prove that they too are civlized
She like most other politicians is hypocrite. Did she felt ahshamed of corruption? Why did she not write to Manmohan Singh?
