Surat: At a recent auction, a 62 year-old diamond merchant, Laljibhai Patel, had bought the suit which Prime Minister Narendra Modi wore during his meeting with US President Barack Obama. Patel has subsequently been favored under a scheme by Surat Municipal Corporation. Speculations are now being raised about the land given to Laljibhai Patel by the Municipal Corporation.

According to a news portal, land worth 54 crores was given to him as a goodwill gesture. Patel had bought the suit for 4.31 crores and had made three bids – Rs. 2.08 crore, Rs. 2.51 crore and Rs. 4.31 crore.

Other bidders participated in the process with great enthusiasm, though were left with mixed feelings after Patel claimed the suit whose base price was 11 lakhs. Some of the people present there were happy that at least the money is being used for a good cause while the others who could not enter the gates to witness the auction were left disappointed.

Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “silence” over the rape incidents in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kathua and Uttar Pradesh’s Unnao was “unacceptable”. He prodded him to speak.

He also accused the Bharatiya Janata Party governments in these states of “protecting rapists”. “Mr Prime Minister, your silence is unacceptable. What do you think about the growing violence against women and children? Why are accused rapists and murderers protected by the state? India is waiting. Speak up,” Gandhi said in a tweet.

Gandhi, who had led the protest Thursday night, was joined by his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and her husband Robert Vadra, hundreds of party workers and senior party leaders.

During the protest, Gandhi slammed the Prime Minister over the repeated incidents of violence, rape and murder of women in the country. “We want the government to take action. Today, women are feeling insecure to move out of their houses. Somewhere a child, a woman is raped, killed and we want that the government should resolve this. The women of the country should feel safe,” he had said. IANS
