Kathua probe fair, ministers ‘misled’ to join protest march: BJP

NEW DELHI, APR 13: Facing flak over the Kathua and Unnao rape cases, the BJP today claimed that its rivals were “selectively” picking the two instances to target it and asserted that stringent action was being taken in both the cases.
BJP spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi defended the two Jammu and Kashmir ministers of the party, who had joined a march against the police probe into the ghastly rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl in Kathua, saying they were “misled and misguided”.
The party did not share their views and they should have maintained that the law was taking its course, she told a press conference here. To a question on whether the party would take action against the two Jammu and Kashmir ministers, the New Delhi MP said it was not a “crime” to be misled. (Agencies)
