Comments not working (error not allowed) on posts with custom post status


I was able to make a custom post status using this codes:

// Registering custom post status
function wpb_custom_post_status(){
    register_post_status('rejected', array(
        'label'                     => _x( 'Rejected', 'post' ),
        'public'                    => false,
        'exclude_from_search'       => false,
        'show_in_admin_all_list'    => true,
        'show_in_admin_status_list' => true,
        'label_count'               => _n_noop( 'Rejected <span class="count">(%s)</span>', 'Rejected <span class="count">(%s)</span>' ),
    ) );
add_action( 'init', 'wpb_custom_post_status' );
// Using jQuery to add it to post status dropdown
add_action('admin_footer-post.php', 'wpb_append_post_status_list');
function wpb_append_post_status_list(){
global $post;
if($post->post_type == 'post'){
if($post->post_status == 'rejected'){
$complete=" selected="selected"";
$label="<span id="post-status-display"> Rejected</span>";
echo '
$("select#post_status").append("<option value=\"rejected\" '.$complete.'>Rejected</option>");
$(".misc-pub-section label").append("'.$label.'");

But whenever i tried posting a comment on the post with this post status and despite having comments enabled on post & the wordpress settings im getting this error:

Sorry, comments are not allowed for this item.

How to fix this? Or any workaround?
