Kathua rape-murder case: Two BJP ministers resign

Forest minister Chaudhary Lal Singh and industries and commerce minister Chander Prakash Ganga sent their resignations after reports emerged that PDP could break alliance with BJP.

Lekhi also claimed that the two cases were "selectively" highlighted to target the BJP and said a similar rape-and-murder case of a minor girl in Assam did not get the prominence that the Kathua and Unnao incidents got.

Both the ministers had on April 4 attended an event organised by Hindu Ekta Manch, an outfit that has been protesting against the arrests in the case. The opposition parties are putting pressure on Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to sack the two ministers.
