Madhav said the resignation of the ministers was to address the fears of not only its ally, the People's Democratic Party, and the people of Jammu & Kashmir, but also the entire nation.
Addressing a press conference here with Deputy CM Nirmal Singh of the party, BJP national general secretary Ram Madhav said the motive of its ministers in joining the Hindu Ekta Manch protest in support of the Kathua accused was to "dispel misgivings about investigations and reassure people that there will be no harassment of any innocent". But both these ministers cleared that it was not their intention to interfere in the Crime Branch investigation.
The chief minister is also lated to announced the termination of the accused police officers against whom a chargesheet has been filed.
The BJP General Secretary said the development would had no bearing on the alliance of two ruling parties in the state.
He added that party state president Sat Sharma will hand over the resignation of the two ministers to Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, who will then decide.
"Dr B R Ambedkar was apostle of social equality and welfare of all the sections of the society and worked throughout his life for the weaker sections", said Mr Madhav while speaking that birth anniversary of Dr Ambedkar here. Forest Minister Singh and Industries Minister Ganga had attended the rally which was carried out in support of the accused in the Kathua rape and murder case.

Later on April 12, he said: "We're having a number of meetings today, we'll see what happens". On Wednesday and Thursday came saber-rattling tweets.
Madhav said he did not see any threat to the BJP's coalition with the PDP. We held discussions on it and their resignation will be sent to Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister today.
He said that the rape-murder incident has shaken the country and there should be no politics on the matter.
Ram Madhav said that the BJP has asked the state government to withdraw the directive of the tribal affairs department on encroachments by nomads on forestland.
The BJP leader also denied that its ministers had resigned under pressure from the PDP.
"The BJP wants justice for the victim and there are no two opinions on that". It is incorrect to say that the BJP leaders tried to influence the investigations.
Both Ganga and Singh had participated in the rally on March 1 after the Crime Branch of Jammu and Kashmir Police had arrested the nephew of a caretaker of a "devisathan" (temple) in connection with the kidnapping and rape of the little girl.
