Sonia Gandhi should have asked for Sheila Dixit's resignation before visiting rape victim: Socialist Party
Wishing her a speedy recovery and healthy future, the Socialist Party has expressed deep concern for the plight of the victim, a medical student, gang-raped in a moving bus in Delhi on last Sunday.

THE ACTIVISTS of the Socialist Party understand that the parents/ family members of the victim are passing through a nightmare beyond imagination. We pray that they may face this crisis with patience and courage.

The Socialist Party in its meeting today, decided to make sincere efforts and extend all possible help to the victim in seeking justice. In this regard, the party approached Justice Rajindar Sachar, who has reciprocated humbly and promised to look into the judicial process of the case personally. He showed heartfelt concern for the victim and her family and condemned the dismissive and insensitive attitude of the Congress leaders including the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi and Delhi chief minister Sheila Dixit.

In the opinion of the Socialist Party, Sonia Gandhi has rubbed salt into the wounds of the victim and the thousands of insecure women in the capital by merely reaching the hospital. If she were really concerned, she should have asked for the resignation of Sheila Dixit in the first place. The gruesome crime is the result of absolute incompetence and insensitivity of the Delhi CM.

Delhi has become a city of rapes, murders and loot under her leadership, not to speak of the several allegations of corruption against her. But Sonia Gandhi always protects and promotes her as she is a member of her coterie.

The regret expressed by the PM on this heartrending incident is a farce. The security of the citizens is not his worry, even remotely. His first and last concern is to implement the neo-imperialist capitalist agenda. By implementing this agenda, he has thrown the Indian society in the gorge of a sub-culture in which women, children and old people are most vulnerable victims.

The Socialist Party demands immediate resignation of the Delhi C.M. It also demands a speedy and effective action in the case and strong punishment to the culprits. The workers of the Socialist Party will observe one-day fast at Rajghat on 21 December and will submit a memorandum to the President demanding justice to the victim. All concerned citizens are invited to the fast beginning at 10 am.
