Cong dismisses BJP’s demand for sacking Mir

NEW DELHI: The Congress today dismissed the BJP’s demand of sacking its Jammu and Kashmir unit chief Ghulam Ahmad Mir for allegedly terming the Kathua rape and murder case as “motivated”, saying it was because of his demand that the inquiry into the matter had seen some progress initially.
The Congress also termed as “misleading” the BJP’s talk of its two State ministers resigning from their posts for taking part in a protest march supporting those accused of raping and killing the eight-year-old girl. The opposition party claimed that it was because of the pressure exerted by the people and the protest march led by party chief Rahul Gandhi that saw the ruling BJP take the action against its ministers.
