Is this woman leader haunting BJP leaders, Yeddyurappa and his family?

Is this woman leader haunting BJP leaders, Yeddyurappa and his family?

BJP General Secretary and its Kashmir pointsman Ram Madhav, who was here to attend the party's legislature meeting, ruled out any threat to the ruling alliance in the wake of the resignations by the two ministers - Choudhary Lal Singh and Chander Prakash Ganga, news gatherer IANS reported.

BJP state chief Sat Sharma received the resignations of both the ministers on Sunday morning, who forwarded them to Mufti, who later, accepted the resignations and passed them on to the state governor for further action.

The minor girl had alleged that she was raped by Kuldeep Singh Sengar, the BJP legislator from Unnao, and his brother previous year, but the police refused to take any action against them.

In the viral audio, Suneet Kumar Singh, station house officer (SHO) of Mauranipur police station, is heard telling Lekhraj Yadav, who's accused in dozens of murder, kidnapping and extortion cases, that his phone and location were on police's radar and he was next on the list of encounter. The chief minister said that she was in constant touch with BJP president Amit Shah and Madhav as well as Home Minister Rajnath Singh. "Heartening to see the Supreme Court take cognisance of the attempted obstruction of justice by some lawyers in the brutal Kathua rape and murder case reminding us once again of the greatness of this nation", she wrote. "The police officer is naming BJP leaders and asking a criminal to manage them". To a question that the two ministers had participated in the rally in support of the accused in the rape case where the national tricolour was being waved, Madhav said, "That is why they had to resign". I see that as a confidence-building measure. Or will she take on the system and emerge a victor like Jayalalithaa, who though dejected by the leaders, went on to become the successor of MGR in Tamil Nadu?

The police have arrested eight persons including the custodian of the temple, his son and two SPOs for their alleged involvement in the crime. Asked about it, Madhav said, "It is now for the court to decide".

With opposition led by Congress mounting a massive attack, BJP's image has suffered a considerable blow. We took action. They resigned.

He alleged that pointing fingers at others while protecting its own was the character of the Congress party.

A nine-year-old girl's body has been found with over 80 injuries, including some on her private parts in Surat, reports news agency ANI.

Asked about the demand for a CBI probe into the incident, the BJP leader said: "It is now for the court to decide".
