Referring to the statements of Congress Jammu & Kashmir unit chief, Javadekar questioned that if Rahul Gandhi can take out a candle march over the incident why can't he take action against his state unit chief.

Ahead of Sunday's meeting, six leaders including Mr Shah, Union ministers Piyush Goel and D V Sadananda Gowda, H N Ananth Kumar, general secretary P. Muralidhar Rao, and state unit president B.S. Yeddyurappa, held a marathon meeting in Hubballi on Thursday and discussed the second list at length.

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". Apart from the BJP and Congress, the Janata Dal Secular party, in alliance with Mayawati's Bahujan Samaj Party for the Karnataka polls, has already announced candidates for 126 constituencies.

"Rajya Sabha leader of Opposition is Ghulam Nabi Azad".

The Congress leader also said that the BJP was also trying to repeat the same episode and bow down in the country again. He evaded questions on why Rahul Gandhi and the Congress remained silent for about three months on the rape and murder case. "Since the locals were adamant and did not allow them to offer flowers, we left the village without saying anything", said BJP's Etah district president, Dinesh Vashisht to the paper. Mir had earlier said that he is shocked that Mehbooba Mufti was maintaining silence despite having all information about the "role" of her two Cabinet colleagues in the Kathua case.

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. When the police was presenting before the court, he did not let them.
