Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mufti appreciates people for dismissing 'communal forces'

Following the concerns on global level over Kathua incident and CM Mehbooba's threatening communication to break alliance, the right-wing party Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Jammu based cabinet ministers were forced to tender resignations, a party source in New Delhi told Kashmir News Bureau.

A meeting of Peoples Democratic Party's (PDP) is also being held in Srinagar today to discuss the situation.

Chief BJP spokesperson Sunil Sethi claimed that none of the party's ministers supported the rapists - all they wanted was a fair investigation.

Jammu: In a clear attempt to lend his voice to the sensitivities of Kashmiris, Tassaduq Mufti, brother of Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti and a minister in her government, on Friday stated it clearly that the PDP had "no moral right" to continue in the coalition government with the BJP in Jammu and Kashmir.

"Madhav admitted the fact that there may have been some indiscretion on their part, but now all of us will try to bring things back to normal".

"I had gone there, (ministers) Bali (Bhagat) and (Abdul Gani) Kohli had gone to Nowshera and Sunderbani to listen to people".

"We appreciate our alliance partner who helped us in this case...they made the two Ministers resign".

On January, 8-year old Asifa, who belonged to the nomadic Bakerwal Muslim Community, had disappeared from a spot near her house in Kathua.

He rejected reports that there was any pressure from his alliance partner PDP for withdrawal of the two ministers.

"I have demanded a CBI inquiry in this matter (Kathua rape and murder case)". I have never done politics for power.
