As Congress President led a midnight march at India Gate to protest against the incidents of rape in Unnao and Kathua, his sister Priyanka Gandhi was visibly miffed after she got pushed by the unruly crowd.
Priyanka Gandhi was heard telling the crowd to respect the cause for which they gathered at the India Gate. She also appealed to the crowd to keep calm and march silently.
"Those who have come here to push people around must go home," she was heard saying.
Many were shouting slogans like "Modi Bhagao, Beti Bachao" as they held candles as a mark of protest.
The police had a hard time controlling the crowd (some of them were even drunk) as many had crossed over the barricades and even broke through them. Traffic movement too came to a halt near the India Gate due to the crowd.
The SPG too had a very difficult time protecting Rahul Gandhi from the chaotic crowd.
