Mehbooba Mufti Resigns As CM; BJP Demands Governor Rule In Jammu & Kashmir

The BJP said it had become "untenable" for the party to continue in the alliance government. He said the BJP faced some difficulty in implementing developmental projects as some ministries were not with the party.
Indian President Ram Nath Kovind on Wednesday approved imposition of governor's rule in held-Kashmir, a day after the Bharatiya Janata Party pulled out of its alliance with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the occupied valley. Jammu and Kashmir was today placed under Governor's rule. We don't have any political interference. He, however, added that he does not doubt the intention of Mehbooba Mufti.
The BJP's decision to come on board with PDP was well reasoned, as it seemed appropriate and far-sighted. "Keeping it suspended has encouraged dalals", Omar said.
None of these early-days stories were recollected this week when BJP general secretary Ram Madhav announced his party's withdrawal of support to the PDP.
The deteriorating law and security situation in Kashmir and "discrimination" against Jammu and Ladakh was also cited as reasons for leaving the coalition government.
"When the PDP was formed, we voted for it, thinking it as our own party". As the saffron party was its partner, Kashmir polity got divided and had to depend on mandate from Jammu-where the PDP (like the NC) has very little base-to form the government.
Terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir had continued with their activities during Ramzan, necessitating suspension of the ceasefire by the Centre, Army Chief Gen Bipin Rawat said on Wednesday. There is a view in the Congress party that the "deteriorating" law and order situation in the state will make it hard for any new alliance to step in at this point.
"The BJP, in its pursuit of power and political opportunism, in the past three years, disrupted the ongoing constructive engagement with the people of the state and has imperilled the security situation, setting the state of Jammu and Kashmir on a fire of anarchy, radicalization, malgovernance and corruption", Congress leaders Ghulam Nabi Azad and Ambika Soni said in a statement.
He said that the Central government has already sent the funds for Kashmiri pandit rehabilitation and other projects but they remain unspent.
With the BJP having pulled out of its coalition with the PDP and the government having fallen, this event has now more political connotations it did have till the other day.
