BJP berth gambit as Jammu unit boils

Lal Singh Kathua Kathua rape and murder case

Sources in the Peoples Democratic Party told IANS the resignations of the BJP ministers is a prelude to the BJP's reconstitution of its part of the council of ministers without any bearing on the continuation in the coalition government in the state. "All BJP ministers have been directed to submit their resignations from the state council of ministers".

All of the Bharatiya Janata Party ministers who are now part of the Mehbooba Mufti government in Jammu and Kashmir have been asked by the party leadership to tender their resignations by tonight, top sources within the BJP have told India Today TV.

The PDP has been in power in the state with support from the BJP, which has 25 legislators, in the 89-seat Jammu and Kashmir Assembly.

The brutal gang rape and murder of the girl from the nomadic Bakerwal community and Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "silence" on the issue were also written about in an editorial of the New York Times.

However, it could not be immediately verified whether the decision of the remaining BJP ministers to quit the Mufti government was linked to the Kathua rape case.

Singh, the former forest minister, said the CM has failed to understand the popular sentiment and was yet to seek a CBI probe into the brutal incident. It had welcomed the resignations of the two BJP ministers.

Senior PDP Minister Abdul Rehman Veeri was divested of Disaster Management, Relief Rehabilitation & Reconstruction portfolios while as he retained Revenue and was also given Parliamentary Affairs and Hajj and Auqaf portfolios. Currently, 14 portfolios are with the PDP and the remaining with the BJP. Today, the situation is unique despite winning a huge mandate in Jammu BJP finds itself in a weak position which was evident on the three month impasse after Mufti Mohammad Sayeed's demise earlier.

There was no need to resign had the media not created such a perception, the BJP leader said.

However, on Saturday, Mehbooba Mufti and her party said the alliance was safe. Naqash and Mir are MoS.
