Kathua rape-murder: Never raised questions on JK polices probe, says Mir


Taking a jibe at the Congress President, Javadekar said, "Rahulji had led a candlelight march at night but why don't he take action against his own leader?"

Mir's remarks came after the BJP this morning played a video purportedly showing him calling the police probe into the rape and killing of an eight-year-old girl in Kathua as motivated and defending the public protests against it. "Local population believe that investigation is motivated, the real culprit is being let go and they're trying to fulfil their political criteria".

State Congress president Ghulam Ahmed Mir earlier pressed for the sacking of two BJP ministers over their involvement in the entire episode of Kathua and subsequent polarisation of the Jammu region.

The two ministers - Lal Singh and Chander Prakash Ganga - resigned on Friday, soon after Prime Minister Narendra Modi said these incidents, including a rape case in which a BJP MLA from Unnao district of Uttar Pradesh is the accused, had shamed the country and that justice would be ensured in all the cases.


Jammu Bar president Bupinder Salathia, who is heading the agitation and supporting the Hindu Ekta Manch, was the chief polling agent of Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad in the 2014 elections. "He should apologize to nation".

The leader, who is scheduled to attend the party congress in Hyderabad from April 18-22, has said that the need of the hour is to remain united against the BJP-RSS and revive the party's struggle among the Dalits, farmers and workers.

It was played in the presence of senior BJP leader and Union HRD minister Prakash Javadekar and Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari. They are trying to defame the BJP.

On the occasion of 127th birth anniversary of Dr. Bhim Rao Ambedkar, the Congress accused the BJP of "eroding" his legacy. Mid-day accepts no responsibility or liability for its dependability, trustworthiness, reliability, and data of the text.
