RSS organisations trafficking girls from Assam, says Congress
The Congress has accused three RSS-affiliated organisations of trafficking young tribal girls from Assam and “indoctrinating” them with the Hindutva ideology.

Congress spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi claimed that the Rashtra Sevika Samiti, Vidya Bharti and Sewa Bharti –  both RSS-affiliated outfits – “trafficked” 31 girls aged between three and 11 years from Assam in active connivance with the BJP-ruled governments in the states.

Flouting rules

A detailed investigation and documentary evidence has “unflinchingly established” as to how the Sangh Parivar “flouted” Indian and international laws on childrens’ rights to traffic the tribal girls from Assam to Punjab and Gujarat to ‘indoctrinate’ them.

The age group of the girls, belonging to the Bodo and Santhal communities from Assam’s Kokjrajhar district, ranged between three and 11, Chaturvedi claimed.

Mahila Congress president Shobha Ojha wondered whether this was what Prime Minister Narendra Modi meant by ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’.

Ojha also demanded that the 31 girls be returned to their families at the earliest.

The Congress leaders claimed that the girls were brought to Delhi from five border districts of Assam – Kokrajhar, Goalpara, Dhubri, Chirang and Bongaigaon on June 11, 2015.

“The girls were rescued after intervention from Childline, Delhi, an NGO working for childrens’ rights. But the police did not register a case due to political diktats,” Chaturvedi said.
