Congress leader Rahul Gandhi hit out at the government on Thursday over a media report on sexual exploitation of minor girls in the mines of Uttar Pradesh’s Chitrakoot, asking “is this the India of our dreams”?

Along with a tweet, Gandhi tagged the media report that claimed that during the coronavirus crisis, a case of sexual exploitation of minor girls in the Chitrakoot mines has come to light.




“Starving family in an unplanned lockdown…These girls have paid a terrible price to live,” the former Congress chief said in the tweet. “Is this the India of our dreams?” he asked.
