Kathua rape case: Mufti accepts resignations of BJP ministers

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

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday forwarded the resignations of two BJP ministers to the State Governor N N Vohra for acceptance.

The PDP and the BJP are in alliance in Jammu and Kashmir.

"They took the resignation of two ministers because as per media, their role was not positive, " said PDP leader and Works Minister Nayeem Akhtar.

Amid rumours that the PDP may seriously discuss the withdrawal of the party from the coalition, Chief Minister and party president Mehbooba Mufti held a meeting with all PDP lawmakers and party leaders in Srinagar. "But when our policemen investigate cases where the identity of the perpetrators does not suit them, and they want to protect the accused, our police become unreliable", he said in an interview to Kashmir Life portal and weekly.

BJP spokesperson Sunil Seth said the final decision to induct ministers would be taken by party high command. Ram Madhav had 45-minute meeting with Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti before taking meetings of BJP Legislature Party comprising ministers, MLAs, MLCs and senior office bearers followed by exclusive meeting with 11 party ministers at the BJP headquarters at Trikuta Nagar.

According to the complaint to UP Police, victim's mother also alleged that while the MLA was raping her daughter, Shashi Singh stood outside the room as a guard. "And if PDP and BJP continue to resolve their issues like this, I see there is no substitute to this alliance", he said. "I can't understand why my name is being used", he said, adding, "However, it shows how the fear of law has gripped the criminals". The girl was kidnapped on January 10 and her body was found on January 17.

The minor girl had alleged that she was raped by Kuldeep Singh Sengar, the BJP legislator from Unnao, and his brother a year ago, but the police refused to take any action against them. "During my visit last month here, I made it clear to everyone that in this matter no one speaks and let us allow the investigations to complete". He cautioned that there should be no communal politics played over the ghastly crime and everyone should ensure speedy justice and exemplary punishment to the culprits.

The police officer tells him that the current government under the BJP is stricter against criminals than the previous Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party governments and that he would have to "change with the times".
