Mehbooba Mufti forwards resignation of two BJP ministers to governor

  • A CBI officer privy to investigations said the agency was collecting all such recordings that had gone viral on social media

The ministers, according to the reports, have resigned to make way for the new inductees.

"Sources said the ministers had been told to send across their resignations at meetings held last week by BJP strategist Ram Madhav when he was in Jammu to meet lawmakers after the party's two ministers had to exit the Mehbooba Mufti government".

A BJP office-bearer in New Delhi said the resignations in the Mehbooba Mufti-led government would lay the groundwork for a long-pending reshuffle.

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.

However, Singh appeared to be changing his narrative today, saying he wanted a CBI probe so that justice could be ensured for the victim.

There are three vacancies in the council of ministers in the state, as the PDP had last month removed its finance minister Haseeb Drabu after his controversial remark that Kashmir was not a political issue. Meanwhile, news agency PTI said that as per top state government sources, the reshuffle will most probably take place on April 20.

"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", he said, a swipe aimed at the chief minister. It portrayed the situation in a wrong way, which was not the case at all. "We have not done anything wrong", Singh added.

The Kathua incident has again strained the ties between the BJP and PDP, which became unpopular in the state after forming a governing alliance with the saffron party in 2015. As per IANS, a core group meeting, chaired by party vice-president Avinash Rai Khanna, took the decision.

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.
