Protests to greet Modi in UK

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) asked all its ministers in the Jammu and Kashmir government to resign but Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti rushed to clarify that the BJP is not pulling the plug, reported PTI.

Sources told GNS said that while there was no threat to PDP-BJP government, the resignation will allow the party to induct fresh faces and retain previous ones who are already in the government based on their performance. The duo had attended a rally organised by the Hindu Ekta Manch, expressing solidarity with the accused arrested on charges of gangraping an eight-year-old migrant Muslim girl in Kathua, before bludgeoning her to death. But ANI quoted sources in the state to report that the move was merely a reshuffle. Chander Parkash Ganga and Choudhary Lal Singh were asked to resign by the BJP high command after the party faced criticism for not taking action against them.

The ministers had tendered their resignation to party's state president Sat Sharma on Friday and it was forwarded by him to the Chief Minister on Saturday.

The incumbent PDP ministers include Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, Abdul Rehman Veeri, Ghulam Nabi Lone, Abdul Haq Khan, Syed Basharat Ahmed Bukhari, Chowdhary Zulfkar Ali, Naeem Akhtar, Imran Raza Ansari, Mohammad Altaf Bukhari, Javaid Mustafa Mir, Tassaduq Hussain Mufti, Asiea Naqash and Zahoor Ahmad Mir.

Earlier today, Lal Singh held a roadshow from Jammu to Kathua, demanding a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe to ensure justice for the victim.

"If two ministers can sacrifice their posts in the interest of peace, those who are actually responsible for creating such an atmosphere should listen to their conscience", Singh said targeting the PDP leader. The former forest minister said Mufti has failed to gauge the popular sentiment.

The tone of Singh was completely different from his speech at the March rally in Kathua where he had demanded a CBI probe accusing the crime branch of Jammu and Kashmir Police of arresting people without any proof. "It was portrayed that the entire Jammu region was siding with rapists", he claimed.

"It (the perception) created problems for our prime minister and country. We have not done anything wrong", Singh added.
