Gave resignation on moral grounds: BJP JandK minister

Mehbooba Mufti

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday accepted the resignations of two Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ministers Chandra Prakash Ganga and Lal Singh.

Earlier in the day, Lal Singh also sought a CBI probe and said what is wrong with it. "I gave resignation on moral values".

TNIE is in the possession of a copy of the medical report that was prepared after her age-determination test in June 2017, when, she has alleged, that she was raped on June 11, 2017.

Frustrated with the alleged inaction and coercion from powerful people, the victim attempted self-immolation in front of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's residence on April 8 which made headlines.

BJP National General Secretary Ram Madhav said that he will speak to the party leaders as well to the two Ministers who have tendered their resignations on Friday evening. "Two people are missing", he added. "We will bring a new law that will make the death penalty mandatory for those who rape minors, so that little Ashifa's case becomes the last". Coming under pressure from the local public they spoke at a gathering.

Accusing the Congress of creating a perception in the country that daughters are not getting justice here, Ganga said, "We felt that the image of the party and the Prime Minister is at stake and under a conspiracy the whole thing is going on". He also denied any trouble in alliance with the Peoples Democratic Party. When an organisation organised a protest against the initial investigations into the case, two BJP ministers in the J&K cabinet joined in.

SP leader Chandrapal Singh Yadav quickly launched an attack and said names of BJP leaders in the conversation shows they were shielding criminals. "But the MLAs were misguided".

The after effects of the gruesome rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl in Jammu Kashmir's Kathua district is felt in the Chengannur constituency, where a bypoll will be held shortly. The girl was kidnapped on January 10 and her body was found on January 17. "Beyond that, I don't think there will be any impact of this incident or these developments on the coalition".
