Kathua Rape Rally: BJP Sends Resignations Of Its 2 Ministers To Mehbooba

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath

The Chief Minister forwarded the resignation of the two ministers to the state Governor, reports said.

The crisis in the PDP-BJP coalition government over participation by two BJP ministers in a rally over the Kathua case subsided after the resignations of the two minister was accepted on Saturday.

In a bid to save the alliance, Bharatiya Janata Party national general secretary Ram Madhav rushed to Jammu and chaired a legislature meet at the party headquarters.

The JKNPP leader alleged that the BJP ministers preferred to play a second fiddle to Mehbooba thus facilitating the promotion of her "pro-separatist agenda" in the state. Mehbooba Mufti as state Home Minister has also dismissed all the cops of Hira Nagar Police Station who have been found accused in the case. When an organisation organised a protest against the initial investigations into the case, two BJP ministers in the J&K cabinet joined in. "New Delhi must wake up to the Kashmir cauldron", she said.

PDP legislators including ministers and senior party leaders also met in Srinagar to discuss the situation arising out of the BJP ministers' resignations and the widespread outrage over the rape and murder incident. "This is all your figment of imagination", Madhav said in his reply to a query from a reporter that the PDP had threatened to walk out of the alliance if the two ministers did not resign. While police initially did not arrest him, the eventual pressure resulted in the matter being handed over to CBI and Sengar being arrested.
