Kathua rape case PDP wants two BJP ministers out may break alliance

Kathua rape case PDP wants two BJP ministers out may break alliance

In Jammu, Ram Madhav said there was no threat to the PDP-BJP coalition as both the parties were working in coordination.

"During communication the Madam CM told BJP leadership that when I can sack Haseeb Drabu over public outrage, what makes you to stop disqualify the Lal Singh and Ganga involved in lending helping hand to accused", a top source in PDP said here.

He rejected reports that there was any pressure from his alliance partner PDP for withdrawal of the two ministers.

That has been exposed by the brutal rape-murder of an eight-year-old girl from the nomadic Muslim Bakrawal community in Jammu's Kathua that has triggered tensions in the region.

Cold and damp weather is expected throughout the day, with the temperatures reaching a high of only about 45, DiSpigna said. For comparison, mid 80s is what we see for highs in the height of summer and mid 30s is typical for the dead of winter.

Srinagar (Jammu and Kashmir), 13 April (ANI): Jammu and Kashmir former chief minister Omar Abdullah on Friday demanded the JandK Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to take action against Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) ministers, who are supporting Kathua rape culprits.

The PDP is facing a lot of political flak for sharing the alliance with the BJP whose two ministers Lal Singh and Chander Prakash Ganga had sided with the Hindu agitators in Kathua in demanding a CBI inquiry into the rape and murder of an eight-year-old nomad girl. Crime Branch of Jammu and Kashmir Police had started investigations back in January in the case, which had shaken the conscience of the nation.

Mehbooba Mufti, who chaired the party's meeting in Srinagar, thanked the prime minister and the national media and said the unity in ranks was an emotional reach out to protest against the heinous crimes. However, the state unit of the saffron party is also holding a meeting with their leaders to discuss exit of BJP ministers and other aspects of the coalition with PDP. The state government has also chose to terminate from service the cops accused in the case.

The senior BJP leader admitted that the two ministers displayed lack of discretion by taking part in the rally, but made it clear that there was no attempt to sabotage the investigations as charged by the Congress party.

She also called for exemplary punishment for those responsible for the crime.

In an earlier tweet she also said it was comforting to see the Supreme Court pull up the Jammu bar association for blocking justice in the rape and murder case of minor girl.

BJP spokesman Ashok Kaul told Firstpost that the meeting would take place at the saffron party's office and all the leaders would attend the meeting, including the two leaders who have sent in their resignations.
