Ram Madhav, the BJP National General Secretary said in Jammu that there is no threat to the PDP-BJP alliance in Jammu and Kashmir. He added that both the parties are working in coordination.
Moreover, Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, who is in Srinagar, is expected to request the Jammu and Kashmir High Court to constitute a fast track trial court to deliver a sentence in the Kathua rape and murder case.
“We will speak to our party legislature and also to the two ministers who have submitted their resignations,” Madhav, who is also the BJP incharge for Jammu and Kashmir, said.
“Things would be discussed and deliberations will be held about the latest political developments in the state.”
Tasaduq Mufti, JK’s Tourism Minister had told the Indian Express that PDP and BJP have ‘ended up being partners in a crime (for which) an entire generation of Kashmiris might have to pay with their blood”.
Seconding his concerns, senior PDP leader Nizamudin Bhat had said that PDP needs to decide its future course of action ‘befitting its sacrifices.’
The Chief Minister is also slated to announce the termination of the accused police officers against whom a chargesheet has been filed.
On Friday, the two BJP ministers, Choudhary Lal Singh and Chander Prakash Ganga, who had rallied in support of the accused in Kathua rape resigned from the Jammu and Kashmir cabinet.
Earlier, the BJP had said that both the ministers were ‘misled and misguided by a few people.’
