JP Nadda on Kotkhai Gangrape

Shimla: The arrest of Himachal Pradesh Police officials including the Inspector General of Police, Zahur H Zaidi, and negative reports of DNA testing have put the State government in an embarrassing situation. Opposition Bhartiya Janata Party and Communist Party of India have again launched agitations demanding the resignation of the Director General of the Police and the Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh.

The Union Minister of Health and Family Welfare, J P Nadda, also launched an attack against the Himachal Pradesh Government over recent developments in the investigation of the gangrape and murder of a Class X girl in Kotkhai, Shimla district.

He termed these developments in Gudiya Rape case as proof of abysmal governance. The public will lose faith in the government. It will also lead to loss of public face for hitherto very professional and honest police department of the state, he said.

The people of the state are genuinely angry with this inefficient, corrupt and jaded government and want to put in place BJP government in the state, he added.

Nadda further said that the very intension of constitution of special investigation team by state government, a plausible action to speed up investigation in fair, impartial and professional manner, has been shrouded with suspicion and ill motive by latest developments.

Though the investigation is underway and the matter is subjudice, the actual culprits of this dastardly act are yet to be nabbed and prosecuted. Yet, the arrest of complete SIT by CBI is not something routine and usual step. This shows that the officials sitting at the top tried to influence the direction of this case,

Nadda said.

BJP state unit had been demanding a fair and unbiased investigation in this case since very beginning, he said.

The general sentiments of the public are against the state police investigation flip-flop under apparent pressure from the political establishment in the government.

This is an unprecedented and unusual situation where an IG rank officer of state police has to be arrested by CBI, he said

The present government has created an utter mess so far as law and order machinery and other administrative aspects are concerned, he said.

He alleged the whole tenure of the present government is synonymous with nepotism, corruption, and inefficiency and now towards the fag end of this dispensation, things have gone from bad to worse.

The Chief Minister and party are at loggerheads and busy in making a beeline at 10 Janpath rather than caring for minimal governance for which they have been mandated, he remarked.

Nadda further added that it would be a challenging task to restore sanity and confidence in state machinery responsible for maintaining law and order.
