Governors Rule in Jammu & Kashmir
Srinagar/New Delh: Jammu and Kashmir is all set to come under a brief spell of Governor’s rule with the process of new government formation following the death of Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed taking some time.
The President is understood to have cleared the recommendation of the Union Home Ministry for imposing Governor’s rule on the basis of a recommendation from Governor N N Vohra, sources said.
Union Minister of State for Personnel Jitender Singh, who hails from Jammu region, told reporters in Delhi that Governor’s rule has been imposed in the state for now.
The state had to be put under Governor’s rule in view of the reluctance of Mufti’s daughter Mehbooba to take oath during the mourning period though her party has already conveyed to the governor that 28 MLAs of the PDP legislature party backed her for the Chief Minister’s post.
