  • Parliament could not function because of BJP Kamal Nath

He appealed the party leaders to observe fast in their respective constituencies along with a large number of people.

Meanwhile, IOK Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has said that police is following proper procedures in the case, and assured agitating protesters that justice will be delivered. "They heard us and went back to their homes", he said.

"The BJP passed a resolution on April 1 condemning the incident of rape". "Where are other prominent women leaders of the BJP who were sloganeering on "Bahut hua nari par war" during the UPA?" he asked, adding that some of them were giving us homilies of not politicising these things", he added.

Rahul Gandhi, the chief of the main opposition Congress party, led a candlelight march in Delhi on Thursday night.

While Prime Minister Narendra Modi led a fast on Thursday against the washout of recent Parliament session, two Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLAs from Pune were caught on camera snacking.

Lekhi said: "In Kathua rape case, a fair probe is going on and strictest action has been demanded against the culprits".




The GAP members also expressed dissatisfaction and disappointment over the BJP's silence in this respect, and said that they find it unusual that the party has in fact supported the T&CP Minister in his doings. "Now you all can imagine what kind of dirty politics is being played in the country", she said.

"This pressure is being built by those who are heading the Bar Council and Bar Associations". Since 1989, there has been an armed revolt in the Muslim-majority Kashmir valley against Indian rule - they valley is adjacent to Hindu-majority Jammu.

Speaking of the rape incident in Uttar Pradesh's Unnao, Lekhi said: "This is a 10-month-old case".

"It is surprising that despite being aware about the role of the two Senior Ministers behind Kahtua agitation, Chief Minister is patronizing them by not taking any action against them, one fails to understand as to who is ruling the State actually".

Up to six police personnel were suspended for allegedly beating up the victim's father.

"The matter was referred to the CBI by the state government and the CBI has detained the BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar for questioning", she said.
