"BJP will forward the resignations of the two ministers to J&K CM Mehbooba Mufti".

Forest Minister Lal Singh and Industries Minister Chandra Prakash Ganga resigned amid outrage over their support for the men accused of raping and murdering the 8-year-old girl in Kathua. "Therefore, keeping in mind the perception and general situation, the two BJP leaders, after holding consultations with the prime minister and other senior leaders of the party, chose to submit their resignations", Madhav told reporters.

A crisis had overtaken the Peoples Democratic Party-Bharatiya Janata Party coalition in the state over the role of these two ministers.

On January 17, an eight-year-old girl was allegedly abducted, drugged, raped, tortured and killed in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua district.

Meanwhile, the uncle of the victim alleged that Sengar's brother Atul, who is lodged in Unnao jail, is issuing threats to the villagers asking them not to speak to police against him or his brother either. Her strong views and attitude to take on any leader in the party is said to be worrying many. While police initially did not arrest him, the eventual pressure resulted in the matter being handed over to CBI and Sengar being arrested.
