Bharatiya Janata Party leader Choudhary Lal Singh on Saturday defended his participation in a rally supporting the accused in the Kathua rape and killing case, saying that it was meant to defuse the situation and restore normalcy. "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.

Minister for Forests and Environment Chaudhary Lal Singh and Industries and Commerce Minister Chander Prakash Ganga had supported a demand by the Hindu Ekta Manch that the case be handed over to CBI for investigation. The statement by United Nations comes a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressing a rally in New Delhi said nobody will be spared.

As reports emerged that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) could break alliance with the BJP if the two ministers didn't resign, the BJP top brass had to act, sources said. The duo resigned Friday after Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti vowed stringent action against the accused men.

He said there is no threat to the coalition government and the two parties are working in coordination.
