Mehbooba Mufti's New Delhi communication forces BJP Ministers to resign

Call to sack BJP duo

Call to sack BJP duo

While a meeting of the BJP legislature party is scheduled to be held in Jammu today to chart the future course of action on the issue, legislators of coalition partner PDP are also meeting here to "take stock of the situation".

Madhav, who was the pointsman for the BJP in forging the alliance with PDP, said the two ministers had been sent to Kathua to pacify the people who were agitated after the incident.

That was perhaps his clearest reference to the PDP's alliance with the BJP under which the situation in Kashmir has deteriorated and the rate of civilian deaths has been quite high. Political, social, trade and tourist organizations in Jammu have been protesting against the settlement of Rohingya Muslims, whom they perceive as a security threat, in the region and demanding their deportation. He later told reporters that the two ministers had been "indiscreet" by taking part in the rally, but denied that there was an attempt to sabotage the investigation.

In Jammu, BJP national general secretary Ram Madhav and Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh, presided over a meeting of party legislators and forwarded the resignations of two BJP Ministers, Chowdhary Lal Singh and Chadar Praksah Ganga, to Ms. Mufti for her final consideration. The involved cops, sub-inspector Anand Dutta and head constable Tilak Raj, have also been arrested and are named in the charge sheet by the crime branch, along with Sanji, his son Vishal Jangotra, his juvenile nephew, special police officer Deepak Khajuria, and Parvesh Kumar.

She said time has come to again start on the road to resolution and the process shall have to be clear of conditions.

"I want to assure the entire nation that I stand committed not just to ensure justice for Ashifa but also seek exemplary punishment for those responsible for a crime whose brutal savagery has shamed humanity", Ms Mehbooba wrote on micro-blogging site twitter. Hussain also opposed vehemently the demand of Jammu lawyers for transfer of the investigations in this case to the CBI. "We very much hope that the authorities will bring the perpetrators to justice so they can be held accountable for the murder of this young girl", Guterres' spokesperson Stephane Dujjaric told reporters at his daily press briefing.

State police chief S.P. Vaid defended the crime branch probe, saying: "If Jammu and Kashmir police can deal with terrorists and stone-throwers, why can't they deal with this case?"

"Dear PDP, the first "pro-rapist" rally was taken out by two of Mehbooba Mufti's ministers & they continue to serve at the pleasure of the Chief Minister in her cabinet", he tweeted.
