Besides, all the district units of the party all over the state shall similar candle-lit marches to protest against the rape incident of an 8-year-old nomadic girl in Jammu & Kashmir's Kathua and a young girl in Uttar Pradesh's Unnao which have shaken the country.

Both Ganga and Singh had participated in a rally on March 1 after the crime branch of Jammu and Kashmir Police had arrested the nephew of a caretaker of a "Devisthan" (temple) in connection with the kidnapping and rape of the little girl.

BJP general secretary Ram Madhav had gone to Jammu on Saturday morning and held consultations with senior party leaders as well as MLAs and MLCs to discuss the situation in the state.

After the meeting, Public Works minister Naeem Akhtar "appreciated" the support of alliance partner Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Asifa gangrape-and-murder case.

The steps undertaken by the J&K government come soon after 2 BJP ministers in the PDP coalition government resigned. The two ministers were present at the rally in support of the rape-accused where the tricolour was also waved.

The attack began at 4 a.m. (0100 GMT) with missiles hitting the eastern suburbs of Damascus , shaking the grounds from a distance. Both the Russian military and the Syrian government said they would facilitate the mission and ensure the inspectors' security.

Ganga and Singh submitted their resignations to the BJP's state president on Friday "to save the image of the prime minister and the party" following a controversy over their presence in a rally in support of the accused. "It was sheer indiscretion on their part", he said.

She said the unfortunate incident changed the discourse and brought the people of the state and the rest of the country together.

"The resignation was to address the fears of not only its ally PDP and the people of Jammu and Kashmir but also the entire nation", said Mr. Madhav.

"We appreciate our alliance partner who helped us in this case...they made the two ministers resign in the case". The body of the girl was recovered from the Rassana forest in January, a week after she went missing from the area while grazing horses. "To safeguard the interest of Jammu, I will not hesitate to fight the government or meet the prime minister personally and reiterate the demand for a CBI probe into the Kathua rape-and-murder case which is the demand of lakhs of people", Ganga told reporters in Jammu on Saturday evening.

He cautioned that there should be no communal politics played over the ghastly crime and everyone should ensure speedy justice and exemplary punishment to the culprits.
