Responding to the tweet of Rahul Gandhi that the case is a crime against humanity, PDP Minister and official spokesman of the state government, Nayeem Akhtar, tweeted back: "Congress fingerprint in the entire episode was always evident".
The playing of video by the BJP is aimed at diverting attention from the involvement of its J-K ministers and party leaders in the Rassana agitation to shield the culprits of the Kathua case, Mir alleged.
At his press conference on Sunday, Javadekar also asked Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad to apologise to the nation because the head of the Bar Association of Jammu, BS Slathia, was reportedly his polling agent in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
"BJP leaders have mastered the art of "Extending State Protection to Rapists", "Shaming the victim and her family", "Defending the accused and crying conspiracy", "Blatant Cover ups", "Absolute Whataboutery" & "Superficial Damage Control"- And the Adityanath Government has perfected this art to the hilt", Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala said.
The Congress leader will hold a Kisaan Choupal (meeting with the farmers) in Jainabganj Mandi of Shukl Bazaar in Amethi and inaugurate a passport service centre today.
Senior BJP leader and Union Minister Prakash Javadekar has attacked Congress President Rahul Gandhi accusing his party of doing politics on Kathua rape and murder case. "It was prior to the arrest of the mastermind and main accused, and others (in the Kathua case)", he said. Police sources confirmed their earlier departure from Hira Nagar and said that though they used to migrate during the summer months, this time they have left the place much earlier.
