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

Talking about the resignation of the two BJP ministers - Lal Singh and C P Ganga - he said people would have welcomed them had they resigned immediately after their assurance of CBI probe was rejected by the chief minister. On Saturday, Madhav convened a meeting of party legislators and ministers here and pointed out that the party's state secretary Vijay Sharma, who led the Hindu Ekta Manch, was no longer a BJP office bearer. These two ministers had gone to pacify the people, but subsequently, their presence was mistaken for trying to shield the accused.

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.

The BJP on Sunday asked Congress President Rahul Gandhi to sack his party's Jammu and Kashmir President Ghulam Ahmed Mir for saying that the investigation in the rape and murder of a young girl in Kathua was motivated.

In the viral audio, Suneet Kumar Singh, station house officer (SHO) of Mauranipur police station, is heard telling Lekhraj Yadav, who's accused in dozens of murder, kidnapping and extortion cases, that his phone and location were on police's radar and he was next on the list of encounter. The two ministers were present at the rally in support of the rape-accused where the tricolour was also waved. Her strong views and attitude to take on any leader in the party is said to be worrying many.

There are three vacancies in the council of ministers as the PDP had last month removed its finance minister Haseeb Drabu unceremoniously, they said. Both the ministers had maintained yesterday that they had been sent by the party to Kathua to understand the ground situation. "And if PDP and BJP continue to resolve their issues like this, I see there is no substitute to this alliance", he said.

Ministers Chaudhary Lal and Chander Prakash had submitted resignation to the BJP state chief on Friday.

She also claimed that her family was being threatened after they tried to file an FIR. The girl was kidnapped on January 10 and her body was found on January 17.

He alleged that pointing fingers at others while protecting its own was the character of the Congress party.
