"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, made a decision to submit their resignations", Madhav told reporters.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) asked two of its ministers to resign because of the bad press they received, not for anything they did against the party line.

The CBI arrested BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar in connection with the alleged rape of a 17-year-old girl in Uttar Pradesh's Unnao district last year and the custodial death of her father earlier this week.

He said Forest Minister Lal Singh and Industries Minister C P Ganga were mere sacrificial lambs for the BJP in order to save its opportunistic alliance with the PDP.

A nine-year-old girl's body has been found with over 80 injuries, including some on her private parts in Surat, reports news agency ANI.

"The media was hitting at the party's image, and they resigned". Both the alliance partners - the BJP and the PDP - had separate legislature party meetings in Srinagar and Jammu on Saturday to discuss the situation arising out of the polarisation in the state over the rape-cum-murder of the girl.

"Naari Virodhi (anti-woman) Adityanath has not only utterly failed in his constitutional duties as the Chief Minister and abused the oath of office but also played an important protagonist in safeguarding the interests of the rape accused BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar", he added.
