Raking up the December 16 gang-rape case in Delhi, Modi said the Congress has done nothing to ensure women's safety and Sonia Gandhi, despite being a woman, is misleading other women.

"You have announced Rs 1,000 crore as Nirbhaya fund and said that this money will be used for the daughters of this country. Despite announcing the fund, you did not spend even a single rupee from it," Modi said at a rally in Maharashtra's Chandrapur district.

“There is not even a single BJP-ruled state among the top 10 states where the maximum atrocities against women happened,” he added.

Modi also brought up the issue of a Congress women party worker in Maharashtra's Latur city, who recently went missing.

“She was later found dead and a party member was arrested in this case,” said Modi.

"If members of your own party are not safe, how will you ensure the safety of this country,” he asked.

The BJP’s prime ministerial candidate also accused the Congress of polarising votes in the country.
