Rahul accuses PM Modi of endorsing ‘mass rapist’ Prajwal Revanna

Shivamogga (Karnataka), May 2 (UNI) Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Thursday launched a scathing attack on Hassan MP and JD(S) leader Prajwal Revanna, denouncing the recent sex scandal as a “mass rape” and squarely blaming the BJP for supporting the grandson of former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda.

Gandhi’s allegations were direct and damning. “Each BJP leader was well aware that Prajwal Revanna is a mass rapist, yet they chose to back him, forging an alliance with the JDS,” he asserted during an election rally here.

Further intensifying his criticism, Gandhi accused Prajwal Revanna of heinous crimes. “Prajwal Revanna rapes 400 women and records videos,” he alleged, adding to the gravity of the accusations.

Continuing his rebuke, Gandhi pointed fingers at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, echoing his sister Priyanka Gandhi’s sentiments. “PM Modi openly supported a ‘mass rapist’ on stage,” he declared, demanding that Modi seek forgiveness from women.

Meanwhile, Karnataka Home Minister Dr G Parameshwara announced today that a ‘lookout notice’ had been issued for Prajwal’s arrest, as he faced allegations of sexually abusing women. Despite Prajwal’s plea for a seven-day extension to appear before the Special Investigation Team (SIT) due to his overseas travel, the Minister clarified that no such provision exists beyond 24 hours.

“A lookout notice has been issued soon after it was learnt that Prajwal has gone abroad. We have informed all the ports and Airports about the lookout notice,” Dr Parameshwara affirmed.

Prajwal, grandson of former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda and son of MLA and former Minister HD Revanna, found himself mired in controversy after explicit video clips allegedly involving him surfaced in Hassan.

Prajwal contested as the NDA candidate in the Hassan Lok Sabha constituency, where polling took place on April 26.

The Home Minister revealed that a woman had filed a police complaint accusing Prajwal and his father of sexual harassment. He disclosed that another victim had come forward, lodging a complaint against Prajwal. The SIT is seeking legal opinion on whether to grant more time to the accused.

“The SIT will move forward to arrest him since there is no provision to give more than 24 hours,” Dr Parameshwara emphasized, underlining the seriousness of the allegations against the MP.
