"A decision has been taken about the visit, the schedule is being finalised, Dastidar told IANS."
Kolkata, June 16 - A day after West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee threatened to send her MPs on fact-finding missions to BJP-ruled states, the Trinamool Congress Monday announced that five of its parliamentarians would head to Madhya Pradesh where a tribal woman was gang raped.

Irked over the BJP sending central party delegations to assess the law and order situation in the state, Banerjee Sunday declared a tit-for-tat approach and said she would send a Trinamool team to the BJP-ruled states whenever there is any issue there.

A five-member Trinamool Congress delegation comprising Rajya Sabha members S.S. Roy and Nadimul Haque and Lok Sabha members Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar, Arpita Ghosh and Uma Soren will head to Khandwa, where a 30-year-old woman was gang-raped and paraded naked.

Confirming the move, Dastidar said the schedule of the visit will be finalised soon.

A decision has been taken about the visit, the schedule is being finalised, Dastidar told IANS.

The horrific incident happened earlier in the month when a group of men, including her estranged husband, raped her in front of her minor son, paraded her naked and even forced to drink urine.
