Accusing the National Conference and the PDP of crossing all levels of hypocrisy and shamelessness, independent legislator from Langate Er Rashid Sunday said that both the regional parties have “failed the people of the state in ensuring justice for eight-year-old Kathua rape-and-murder victim.”

In a statement issued here, Rashid said that the investigation should have taken the proper course of action at the very initial stage as not only the crime was heinous but to take measures whatsoever required was within the competence of government.  

“It looks so humiliating on part of PDP that Nayeen Akhter thanks Indian media for highlighting the Kathua issue, forgetting that Indian media maintained a criminal silence for three months on the issue.”

Rashid said, “Akhter and his party continued to succumb under BJP’s pressure for three months.”

“The PDP needs to be reminded that since it is Mehbooba Mufti who is heading the coalition, as such she should have taken action against the ministers once the issue surfaced and there is no role of PDP in sacking the two ministers.”
