After the two ministers, Choudary Lal Singh and Chandra Prakash Ganga resigned from their portfolios, Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday assigned the charge of Departments of Industries & Commerce and Forest, Ecology & Environment to Dy CM Nirmal Kumar Singh.
Earlier, Lal Singh and Chandra Prakash Ganga were compelled to resign from their posts for joining the rally organized in support of Kathua rape and murder accused persons.
An eight-year-old tribal girl was raped and then murdered by some people who are supported by right-wing fringe group Hindu Ekta Munch. The charge sheet submitted in the case has revealed that the crime was committed to drive off the tribal Bakarwal community from the area.
Pertinently, Choudary Lal Singh has told RK that he participated in the rally on the instructions of Party president Sat Sharma.
