On March 1, 2015, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) formed a coalition government in Jammu and Kashmir with the promise of "good governance".
Madhav, who stitched the alliance along with the PDP's Haseeb Drabu, has arrived in Jammu and Kashmir today and he will choose fresh faces from the BJP for the cabinet after the unceremonious exit of Ganga and Lal Singh.
He rejected reports that there was any pressure from his alliance partner PDP for withdrawal of the two ministers.
Jammu: The rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl in Kathua, Jammu and Kashmir has caused annoyance across the country. "The ministers accused the J&K Police of carrying out a biased investigation which vitiated the atmosphere in Jammu and emboldened the people to hit the streets", a senior PDP leader told Firstpost.
After a marathon meeting of party legislators and leaders chaired by its President, Mehbooba Mufti in Srinagar, it was resolved to thank the nation, especially the media and the civil society.

Chief BJP spokesperson Sunil Sethi claimed that none of the party's ministers supported the rapists - all they wanted was a fair investigation. The involved cops, sub-inspector Anand Dutta and head constable Tilak Raj, have also been arrested and are named in the charge sheet by the crime branch, along with Sanji, his son Vishal Jangotra, his juvenile nephew, special police officer Deepak Khajuria, and Parvesh Kumar.
Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Thursday said that the law won't be obstructed by irresponsible actions and statements of a group of people. "We expect the same response of the country irrespective of the party affiliation, irrespective of ideological affiliations, to other wounds, the uncertainty in our youth, the issues of our youth, the political issues will be looked in from humanitarian angle and entire nation gets together and help heal our wounds and support our government".
"I have demanded a CBI enquiry in this matter (Kathua rape and murder case)".
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. "In Jammu, the Congress leaders are casting aspersion over the probe and their senior leaders were creating law and order situation through Bar Council", he alleged.
Informed sources said Mehbooba was likely to request the Jammu and Kashmir High Court to constitute a fast track trial court to deliver a sentence in the case. The party has been in alliance with the BJP for a little over three years.
