Swara Bhaskar has been vocal about the #MeToo movement and her Twitter handle is filled with stories about sexual harassment and how we need to take measures to stop it. A lot of celebrities, journalists and common folks alike shared their MeToo experience but politicians were quite about the matter and didn't utter a word. The only politician to do so is Congress President, Rahul Gandhi as he tweeted, "It's about time everyone learns to treat women with respect and dignity. I'm glad the space for those who don't, is closing. The truth needs to be told loud and clear in order to bring about change."
