BJP ministers' resignations being sent to J&K CM: Ram Madhav

BJP ministers' resignations being sent to J&K CM: Ram Madhav

Denouncing his own party for non-fulfilling of commitments, Tassaduq Mufti, who recent became tourism minister in ruling alliance said that PDP has ended up being partners in a crime with BJP "that an entire generation of Kashmiris might have to pay with their blood".

Ram Madhav, who is in-charge of party affairs in J-K, said that the two ministers made it clear that they never meant to create hurdles in the investigations of the rape-murder of Kathua girl.

On January 17, an eight-year-old girl was allegedly abducted, drugged, raped, tortured and killed in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua district. We took action. They resigned.

Lal Singh was forests minister while Ganga held charge of industry and commerce departments.

The third case pertains to the allegations against the victim's father, who was arrested by the police under the Arms Act and put in jail, where he died.

In a bid to save the alliance, Bharatiya Janata Party national general secretary Ram Madhav rushed to Jammu and chaired a legislature meet at the party headquarters.

He further challenged the federal government to prove his claims wrong or "stop negotiating for numerous girls that don't exist". There are about 100 girls left in Boko Haram captivity after the escape and release, through negotiation, of over 150 others.

The rape victim had disappeared from a spot near her house in Kathua on January 10 and a week later, her body was found in the same area. He added, "The BJP wants justice for the victim and there are no two opinions on that".

Lekhi said Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh has also made a statement about the party's stand on the issue. The Crime Branch of the J&K police after completing investigations into the gory incident filed two separate charge sheets in the court of Kathua's Chief Judicial Magistrate despite resistance shown by local lawyers. "They have been victimised", Balbir Singh, a spokesman for Choudhary Lal Singh, told AFP. With these resignations, the number of ministers in the state government has come down to 22, including nine from the BJP.

As the spine chilling details of the Kathua gang rape case make it to the mainstream media, comparisons are inevitably being drawn with the horrific Nibhaya gang rape case of Delhi in 2012.

He ruled out a CBI inquiry into the incident and expressed satisfaction with the crime branch's probe.

Asked about this, a resident told APN News, "The way incidents of rape are increasing in the country and involvement of BJP leaders in many such cases, there is insecurity and fear among the women and girl children here about BJP workers and leaders". "They should have ideally not commented until an investigation was conducted".

He accused the Congress party of playing double standards. "We are asking people to fight against the forces who are determined to create hatred between Hindus and Muslims for political reasons" Rahmani said at the "Deen Bachao, Desh Bachao" rally at the jam-packed Gandhi Maidan.
