Sonia Gandhi
New Delhi, April 23: Congress President Sonia Gandhi has replied to her critics but in actions, not uttering a single word. A day after BJP leader Sushma Swaraj's mocking statement on UPA Chairperson, Congress spokesperson Renuka Chowdhary on Tuesday, April 23 informed that the party led by Mrs Gandhi has been holding consultations to work out an action plan with a quick response system to check increasing number of crime cases against women.

Speaking about Mrs Gandhi's involvement in the action plan, Chowdhary was quoted as saying, "Today, there is a call for more. Gandhi has reiterated that we need to talk less and do more. She is the guiding spirit behind all the changes, reforms that are happening."

"...this is being addressed internally in the party. We will come out with a future action plan. Till then, I cannot elaborate," said Chowdhary while adding, "We will come out with a future action plan...we are working to get a swift response system."

Chowdhary's statement surfaced just a day after Sushma Swaraj's remark on Mrs Gandhi. The BJP leader earlier on Monday had questioned Mrs Gandhi's role regarding her actions against the rape incidents in the country.

Swaraj, during an interview with a TV news channel, said, "I was shattered when I heard about the rape of five-year-old girl. Soniaji had stated 'now words alone are not enough, we need action.' I want to ask her who should act in this regard? It is hard to understand why the AICC and UPA chief is talking the language used by the Opposition."

Earlier Mrs Gandhi had said, "Action and not words required to check incidents like this heinous rape of five-year-old girl."

The five-year-old girl was abducted on April 15 and kept hostage without food and water in a room in which the attacker lived. The 25-year-old accused Manoj Kumar was arrested on Friday. Kumar later revealed that one of his friend also had raped the toddler. Police arrested the second accused from Bihar, police confirmed the report on Monday.

The victim, who is currently under treatment at AIIMS hospital in the national capital, is believed to have recovered from her injuries. DK Sharma, the hospital medical superintendent, was quoted as saying, "She slept well on Saturday night, and is alert, conscious and speaking to her parents. Her vital parameters are stable, and the colostomy tube is functioning well. At this stage, as such there is no danger to her life."
