Kathua: Crisis in BJP-PDP coalition averted after 2 ministers resign

"Yes, there has been indiscretion and it is for this that they chose to step down", news gatherer quotes him saying after the BJP legislature party meeting. It is incorrect to say that the BJP leaders tried to influence the investigations. The resignations of Lal Singh and Chander Prakash Ganga were received from BJP state chief Sat Sharma this morning which were immediately accepted and forwarded to Governor N N Vohra for completing the procedural formalities, they said.

A girl, speaking to APN News, said, "The incidents of Unnao and Jammu and Kashmir - the rape cases there - have shocked us". Samajwadi Party spokesperson and MLC Sunil Singh Sajan said the SP-BSP combine will comfortably win the two legislative council seats.

An eight-year-old girl in Kathua, belonging to a nomadic Muslim tribe in the district, was sedated time and again before being raped and killed.

"We appreciate our alliance partner who helped us in this case". According to the Election Commission, tenures of 13 MLCs, including SP national president Akhilesh Yadav and two ministers in the Yogi Adityanath government - Mahendra Kumar Singh and Mohsin Raza - will end on May 5. "That is also a confidence-building measure". Speaking at a meeting with her PDP leaders, ministers and legislators, lasting over three hours, Mehbooba said, "The youth here have given enough indication of their anger and discontent over the past several years, even while they gave a chance for democracy to play itself out".

Meanwhile, Mehbooba Mufti, who also holds the Home portfolio, terminated the services of a sub-inspector, a head constable and two Special Police Officers (SPOs) accused of the crime.

The outrage has put pressure on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, whose ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is accused of trying to shield its state lawmaker in one case and of defending the accused in the other. She was taken to a temple in Rasana village in Kathua district. A week later, her body was found in the same area.
