Kathua case: BJP demands action against Jammu and Kashmir Cong chief

Ambedkar statue

Questions would be raised and there must be some justification in the people's demand, Mir said, wondering if the probe was aimed at making some political points.

The union minister said, "Our 2 ministers resigned, but Congress state chief Ghulam Mir said the same so why no action against him by Rahul ji?Jammu Bar Association chief was polling agent of GN Azad".

In a video, Jammu and Kashmir Congress President Ghulam Ahmad Mir was seen suggesting that the real culprits in the case were being protected, and that the distrust of local residents in the investigation could not be ignored.

The BJP had faced flak after its leaders in the Jammu region, including two ministers - Lal Singh and Chander Prakash Ganga - in the Mehbooba Mufti government, joined the public protests against the police probe into the rape and murder case, which led to the arrest of eight persons.

In what clearly shows the anger of underprivileged community towards the Central government, members of Dalit community in Gujarat's Vadodara cleansed the statue of BR Ambedkar with the milk soon after the Union Minister Maneka Gandhi and other Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders from the state paid floral tributes to the architect of the Indian Constitution. We want to ask Rahulji, our two ministers had resigned for joining the rallies in support of the rape accused. The BJP leader also questioned why Gandhi did not take out any march after the 2012 Nirbhaya gang rape. He should apologize to the nation, "Javadekar said".

Mounting an attack on the Christian missionaries, Singh said, "The Christian missionaries are unable to accept the surge of the BJP under the leadership of BJP chief Amit Shah and Prime Minister Narendra Modi".

Claiming that they were Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) workers, Tiwari alleged that they wanted to instigate riots and blame the BJP for the same. Nayeem in another tweet said that the official spokesman of the Congress in J&K is on record supporting pro-rapist protests in Jammu.
