Meanwhile, Congress on Friday demanded the dismissal of Union Minister of State for Railways Rajen Gohain. “(Prime Minister Narendra) Modiji, you have failed the test not once, not twice, not thrice, but almost a dozen times. Again there is a rape FIR against one of your Cabinet colleagues, Gohain,” said Congress leader Pawan Khera.

He said that if PM Modi does not act now, then he would lose the moral authority to stay in the office even for a day.  “Remove him from his office. You can’t allow him to be in a position of power and influence during the investigation. Please remove him if you meant anything that you promised before 2014,” he said.

Gohain is a veteran BJP leader, who has been representing the Nagaon Lok Sabha constituency in Assam since 1999.
