Madhav, who has been the BJP's pointsman on scripting the agenda with the PDP, told reporters in Jammu that the resignations of the two ministers would be handed over to Mehbooba Mufti for further action and also admitted that the two ministers had displayed a lack of discretion by taking part in the rally.
Amidst the ongoing furor over the rape and murder of an eight-year-old Muslim girl in Kathua, two BJP ministers offered a resignation to Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti. Mir added that Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti had expressed her displeasure with the BJP over the "conduct of two ministers".
Another accused, a woman who had allegedly lured the victim, has also been arrested by the police.
Two undated videos of Mir backing the protestors and questioning the probe have gone viral prompting people to ask Congress President Rahul Gandhi to walk the talk after BJP sacked two ministers for joining the rally of Hindu Ekta Manch. She said a sense of justice had been reinforced in the state and urged "New Delhi to wake up to the Kashmir cauldron". Both the ministers had maintained yesterday that they had been sent by the party to Kathua to understand the ground situation.

The girl's body was found in the forests on January 17.
It is incorrect to say that the BJP leaders tried to influence the investigations.
He alleged that pointing fingers at others while protecting its own was the character of the Congress party. The court will monitor the investigation and asked the CBI to file a status report on May 2, the next date of hearing.
