Kathua rape case: Resignations of J&K BJP ministers accepted

In the meantime, two BJP Ministers in J&K Cabinet - Industries Minister Chandra Prakash Ganga and Forests Minister Lal Singh - have quit their respective posts after a huge controversy erupted over their participation in a rally supportive of the accused and arrested persons. In Kathua JK, an eight year old was raped and killed in a temple and BJP ministers came to protest in favour of the accused.

Madhav, largely credited for stitching together the ruling combine of the BJP and the PDP, denied that the two ministers had been asked to resign following pressure from its senior partner in the government.

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 Prime Minister did not accept the explanation and said it did not behove them to attack the government they were part of.

In wake of such incidents, it is necessary to change the thinking of society.

We have a common agenda of alliance and we are implementing our developmental agenda in all three regions of the state".

Informed sources said Mehbooba was likely to request the Jammu and Kashmir High Court to constitute a fast track trial court to deliver a sentence in the case.

Thirteen months back, when Yogi Adityanath was entrusted with the reins of India's most populous state, a large chunk of the people of Uttar Pradesh looked up to him with hope and even admiration. State government and police acted swiftly.
