“As a Home Minister, Mufti has failed in tracing the missing 8-year-old girl for a week,” he said and added that the BJP State President Sat Sharma, who sent both the ministers to the spot to pacify the protestors should also resign for making them scapegoat.

We felt it better (to submit our resignations) to save the image of the party from getting tarnished and to save the image of the prime minister. We were not under any pressure”.
He said it was the party high comm

and which sent them to Kathua to control the situation. I was very clear in my words while condemning the brutal killing of the girl and want the culprits be hanged,” he said.
However, he said, since there was a public demand for a CBI probe, I said we will put forth the demand before the Chief Minister.”
