The Chief Minister forwarded the resignation of the two ministers to the state Governor, reports said.
Earlier, the two had resigned following accusations of attending a rally in support of the culprits in the Kathua gangrape and murder case. They had even threatened of communal clashes if she was buried there, according to the local All Tribal Coordination Committee (ATCC).
Woman Shashi Singh, who is accused of taking the girl to the legislator has also been arrested.
"On March 1, a huge crowd gathered in Kathua and our ministers went there to pacify them. Sometimes a lack of discretion does not tantamount to any guilt.that has led to certain misconceptions about them (two ministers) also, so they decided they will quit as ministers", he had responded, when asked about the two ministers having termed the action of the crime branch as "jungle raj" and warned police from arresting anyone.
Reacting to the possibility of Singh and Ganga being brought back to the cabinet, PDP spokesperson Rafi Ahmad Mir said, "It is too premature for me to make any comment".
JAMMU: Lashing out at Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti for failing, as in-charge home, in tracing the Kathua rape and murder victim, Choudhary Lal Singh has demanded her resignation. "And if PDP and BJP continue to resolve their issues like this, I see there is no substitute to this alliance".
He said the two BJP leaders had visited the Hindu Ekta Manch rally to clam down the people and clear misgiving about the investigations. "But when our policemen investigate cases where the identity of the perpetrators does not suit them, and they want to protect the accused, our police become unreliable", he said in an interview to Kashmir Life portal and weekly.
The victim tried to set herself ablaze outside Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's residence on April 8, claiming inaction in the rape case that took place in 2017.
The next day, her father, who had been in police custody, died from injuries he sustained in an alleged beating.
She also said that while the MLA was raping her daughter, Shashi Singh stood outside the room as a guard.
Within hours of taking over the investigation, the CBI brought Sengar, who had remained untouched by the state police, to its office in Lucknow, where he was questioned for almost 16 hours before being taken into custody on Saturday.
