Srinagar, Mar 13: Expressing solidarity with the family of Kathua rape and murder victim, National Conference Friday said that the party will not cooperate with the State Government until and unless the two erring Cabinet Ministers are sacked for their unacceptable, abhorrent and criminal behavior in the light of this tragedy and its politicization.
Pertinently, two state ministers from BJP fold, Chander Prakash Ganga and Choudary Lal Singh are alleged of lending support indirectly to the criminals involved in Asifa rape and Murder case.
According the NC handout, NC President Dr. Farooq Abdullah on Thursday chaired a day-long meeting of the Party’s Core Group at Party Headquarters ‘Nawa-e-Subha’ in Srinagar. The meeting was also attended by working President Mr. Omar Abdullah along with other members of the Core Group.
The Core Group discussed in detail the insensitive handling of the horrific Kathua rape and murder case by the State Government and also expressed disappointment at the failure of the Chief Minister to act against two Cabinet Ministers who openly rallied support to divisive groups out to subvert the investigation and shield the accused.
The Core Group resolved the party would consider launching a civil disobedience movement against the State Government if it fails to act against the Ministers.
The Core Group also expressed serious concern over the unabated civilian killings in Kashmir and said the Government had failed to protect the lives of innocent civilians by abdicating its basic moral and legal responsibilities. Expressing solidarity with the families of those civilians who had lost their lives, the party extended heartfelt condolences to them. The Core Group said the deteriorating law and order situation in the State was a matter of grave concern and reflected the continued adverse implications of the ruling dispensation’s opportunism and anti-people policies.
