Rasheed questions induction of Jasrotia
Kathua rape and murder case
Srinagar 30 April: Asking Mehbooba Mufti to clear her stand on how Rajiv Jasrotia was inducted in her cabinet, AIP Supremo and MLA Langate Er. Rasheed today said that his induction has exposed the collation Government’s claims of taking a moral ground over Kuthua rape and murder case.
In a statement issued here today, Er. Rasheed said, “If Lal Singh and Chandra Prakash were sacked from the cabinet for their participation in the rally of Hindu Ekta Manch favoring culprits involved in Kuthua rape and murder, the role of MLA Kuthua Rajiv Jasrotia was even more worst. The fact of the matter is that it was MLA Kuthua Rajiv Jasrotia and MLA Samba Kuldeep Raj who were instrumental in getting Lal Singh and Chandra Prakash to the Ekta Manch rally.”
“BJP General Secretary Ram Madhav seems rightly to have said that cabinet reshuffle had nothing to do with Kuthua incident and it is evident that even sacking of two ministers had nothing to do with Kuthua case. PDP leaders including Chief Minister who were taking credit for sacking the two ministers, stand exposed and their helplessness is evident,” the statement quoted Er. Rasheed as saying.
While asking Mehbooba Mufti to clear her stand over the issue, Er. Rasheed in the statement said, “Mehbooba must restrain from lying and misleading people. By inducting the main supporter and organizer of Hindu Ekta Manch in the cabinet, BJP has not only encouraged those who are supporting the perpetrators but has in a way reaffirmed the communal and fringe elements their full support and Mehbooba seems to have made yet again a shameless surrender.”
Er. Rasheed in the statement said that Kavinder Gupta’s statement wherein he described Kuthua incident as ‘a small incident’ deserves condemnation.
