Ambedkar was apostle of social equality: Ram Madhav

Asked whether a dent has been created in the alliance after the Kathua case, Madhav said, "As far as this case is concerned, we have done our bit by allaying the fears and misconception created in the minds of not only the people of Jammu and Kashmir but also in the entire country by asking our two ministers to resign".

Jammu: The resignations of two Bharatiya Janata Party ministers in Jammu and Kashmir government have been accepted and conveyed to Chief Minister Mehboobaa Mufti, confirmed the party's national General Secretary Ram Madhav on Saturday. Their intention was not to hamper the investigation.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti met party legislators and senior ministers in Srinagar to discuss the future course of action on the Kathua rape and murder case of an eight-year-old minor girl.

Madhav, who attended the meeting of the BJP members of the legislative assembly and council, said state BJP president Sat Sharma will send the resignations to the chief minister. "Sometimes, lack of discretion does not amount to a tilt, but the lack of discretion led to a misconception even about the ministers, their own person, and that is why they made a decision to step down".

Madhav, who is the BJP's troubleshooter for the state, said that the state government was told to withdraw the directive of the tribal affairs department on encroachments by nomads in forest land.


Forest Minister Lal Singh and Industries Minister Chander Prakash Ganga tendered their resignation in view of a perception being created, he said.

He lashed out at the Congress, alleging that it was trying to politicise the issue, which should not be done.

"We want culprits should be booked", he said.

Ram Madhav, who is also the BJP in-charge of J&K, said there is no threat to PDP-BJP alliance in the state. "Nobody dictates any agenda to us", he said.

An eight-year-old girl in Kathua, belonging to a nomadic Muslim tribe in the district, was sedated time and again before being raped and killed. "Despite concerns and warnings by democratic forces in and outside the state about this opportunist alliance, the PDP gave damn to it and today they have put a sensitive state like J-K in deep crisis". Incidentally, BJP ministers had jointly called on Mufti to try to persuade her to hand over the case to the CBI. After being missing for a week, her body was found on January 17.
