Kathua rape case Ram Madhav blames Congress for protests in J&K claims BJP-PDP alliance safe

The two BJP ministers, from the PDP-BJP alliance, tendered their resignations to Sat Sharma due to mounting pressure from opponents. "It was sheer indiscretion on their part", he said.

There are three vacancies in the council of ministers as the PDP had last month removed its finance minister Haseeb Drabu unceremoniously, they said. The police claimed the motive behind the crime was to terrify the nomadic community and drive it out of the village.

The meeting of PDP legislators and senior party leaders in Srinagar "praised the role played by the BJP in the Kathua case".

On Friday, two Bharatiya Janata Party ministers, Choudhary Lal Singh and Chander Prakash Ganga, who attended a rally in support of the Kathua accused in March, resigned from the Jammu and Kashmir government led by Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti. "This is all your figment of imagination", Madhav said in his reply to a query from a reporter that the PDP had threatened to walk out of the alliance if the two ministers did not resign.

"We appreciate our alliance partner who helped us in this case". "It has strengthened my belief that Jammu serves as a model of inclusiveness and together the people of J-K inspire secular unity and righteousness", she said and added that this serves as a cue that the people of Jammu and Kashmir can hold a beacon of hope for the whole country amid harshly polarized discourse.

Spurs guard Manu Ginobili said they have to be "desperate" in order to tie the series at one game apiece returning to San Antonio. And unlike past year , the Warriors did not need to overcome a 25-point deficit in Game 1 following Leonard's injury.


The chief minister said that she was in constant touch with BJP president Amit Shah and General Secretary Ram Madhav as well as Home Minister Rajnath Singh.

"The resignation was to address the fears of not only its ally PDP and the people of Jammu and Kashmir but also the entire nation", said Mr. Madhav.

Singh and Ganga had attracted widespread anger and criticism for attending a meeting of the Hindu Ekta Manch, a lose group formed to support the accused, which demanded a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the case.

The little girl went missing on January 10 and a week later, her body, bearing torture marks and signs of sexual abuse, was recovered on 17 January. During the investigation, the crime branch alleged she was drugged and repeatedly raped before being killed by crushing her head with stones. "To safeguard the interest of Jammu, I will not hesitate to fight the government or meet the prime minister personally and reiterate the demand for a CBI probe into the Kathua rape-and-murder case which is the demand of lakhs of people", Ganga told reporters in Jammu on Saturday evening. Certainly, there was a lack of discretion.
