BHU students' protest: Rahul Gandhi slams BJP for lathicharge on girls, calls it party's version of Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao

New Delhi: Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Sunday slammed the BJP for the lathi charge on girl students of Benaras Hindu University.

"BJP version of Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao in BHU," Gandhi tweeted, attaching a video link of the students who alleged that they were beaten up by male policemen at the campus.

The Banaras Hindu University (BHU) campus on Saturday night witnessed violence by students who were lathicharged by the police, in an ugly turn of a protest against an alleged eve-teasing incident.

Earlier in the day, Gandhi thanked external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj for recognising Congress' "legacy" of IITs in her speech at the UN General Assembly on Saturday.

"Sushma ji, thank you for finally recognising Congress governments' great vision and legacy of setting up IITs and IIMs," said Gandhi.
