Congress women workers, on Wednesday, staged a protest outside BJP headquarters in Delhi, demanding immediate resignation of Union Minister, Nihalchand Meghwal, whose name has cropped up in a rape case.
The protesters, led by Shobha Oza, President of All India Congress Mahila Morcha, reached BJP Headquarters at 11, Ashoka Road around noon and raised anti-BJP slogans. They were also carrying placards demanding Meghwal’s resignation. The demonstrators tried to breach the police barricade and burnt Meghwal’s effigy.
Meghwal, 42, is the only representative from Rajasthan in Modi’s council of ministers. He is the Minister of State for Chemicals and Fertilizers. He was named in an FIR filed in 2011 by a woman who alleged that her husband repeatedly drugged her and then allowed his friends, among them Meghwal, to rape her.

Rajasthan Police had, in 2012, closed the case saying the charges were false and fabricated. The woman had then approached a district court which, too, dismissed the charges. She filed a review petition, following which additional district judge issued notices to Meghwal and 17 others in this case last week, asking them to respond by August 20.
