Kathua rape and murder case has nothing to do with reshuffle: Madhav

JAMMU: BJP general secretary Ram Madhav today asserted that the reshuffle in the Jammu and Kashmir Cabinet had nothing to do with the Kathua rape and murder case and it was planned when the alliance with the PDP was stitched three years ago.

He termed the reshuffle a “normal exercise” and said that on reviewing the situation a decision was taken to give opportunity to five more MLAs to understand governance.

He, however, dodged questions over the inclusion of Rajiv Jasrotia, an MLA from Kathua, who had participated in a rally there after the killing of the eight-year-old girl from the Muslim Bakerwal community. (AGENCIES)
