Indian students in UK write to PM, seek justice


London : Just ahead of his visit to London on April 17, Indian students and alumni based in the UK have delivered a letter for Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the Indian High Commission, asking him to take “extraordinary measures” to ensure justice in rape cases. The letter also states that by the time he arrives [in the UK], he would have sufficiently addressed these matters. ‘‘So,when you arrive and address #Bharat Ki Baat Sabke Saath, you can tell us and the world what those extraordinary measures are that you are putting into place to show that enough is enough,” the letter adds. It further states: “When you did address the issues (at a media event), you assured the nation that justice will be delivered. This is welcome. The question Prime Minister, is, when, and how?”

PM Modi will address the world in a globally broadcast live event from the historic Central Hall Westminster in London during his visit to the UK, following in the footsteps of speakers such as Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr.

He will answer questions on social media from all over the world and it will be a ‘‘no-holds-barred interaction with Prime Minister Modi, in a manner and format never witnessed before,” said Vijay Chauthaiwale, in charge of the BJP Foreign Affairs Department.
