The "Hindu Ekta Manch", from which the BJP distanced itself, had also taken out a rally holding a tricolour to press for their demand.

The BJP ministers have tendered their resignations hours after opposition National Conference (NC) warned of launching a civil disobedience movement against the government if it failed to act against two the duo.
