The Hush Post: After the resignation of six BJP ministers in Jammu and Kashmir a couple of days ago, now the deputy chief minister of J&K Nirmal Singh has resigned. No reason is being attributed for his resignation. Kavinder Gupta, the Speaker of Jammu and Kashmir assembly is going to be the new deputy chief minister.
Those who had resigned earlier included Bali Bhagat, Sunil Sharma, Ajay Nanda and Priya Sethi, Chaudhary Lal Singh and Chander Prakash Ganga. The last two of them had resigned following criticism over the rape of a minor girl in Kathua. The two legislators had attended a rally that supported the men accused of the crime earlier this year.
