Srinagar 30 Apr 2018
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national spokesperson Ram Madhav on Monday said cabinet reshuffle in Jammu and Kashmir “has nothing to do with the Kathua incident”.
Madav made a comment on micro blogging website Twitter.
“The cabinet reshuffle has nothing to do with the Kathua incident. Our government has completed three years and we decided to give a chance to new faces. 5 members of the party will be sworn-in as ministers today,” wrote Madhav.
The move is seen as a step to clear party’s image after two BJP ministers Chandra Prakash Ganga and Choudhary Lal Singh had participated in a rally organized by Hindu Ekta Munch outfit in favour of the accused in Kathua minor rape and murder incident.
