Think about the cause for which you have come here: Priyanka Gandhi Vadra

New Delhi:  Congress chief Rahul Gandhi led a midnight march to the India Gate tonight to protest the Kathua and Unnao minor rape cases. His sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, who was also present there, got shoved by some in a chaotic crowd, prompting her to ask people to think about the cause for which they had assembled there.

“Those who are here to push around people must go home. Now please maintain calm and walk silently,” an angry Priyanka Vadra told the crowd.

“Think about the cause for which you have come here,” she said.
