The BJP's architect of alliance with the PDP, Ram Madhav, has arrived in the state on Saturday to follow up on the prime minister's commitment even as the two tainted ministers have resigned. They made the two ministers resign. "It has strengthened my belief that Jammu serves as a model of inclusiveness and together the people of J-K inspire secular unity and righteousness", Mufti said in a tweet.

The BJP sent the resignations to the chief minister who in turn will pass it on to Governor N N Vohra for acceptance, PDP leaders said.

"Yes, there has been indiscretion and it is for this that they made a decision to step down", he told reporters after the BJP legislature party meeting. The meeting is likely to be presided by Madhav.

Singh and Ganga had attracted widespread anger and criticism for attending a meeting of the Hindu Ekta Manch, a lose group formed to support the accused, which demanded a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the case. "He called up Ganga and Lal Singh some two days ago and categorically told them to put in their papers", BJP sources said.
