  • Live Updates Mehbboba Mufti Says J&K Not Enemy Territory Muscular Policy Don't Work Here

When Governor's rule was imposed for the seventh time in 2016 and the third during Vohra's tenure, Omar Abdullah had said the imposition of Governor's Rule during Vohra's tenure "must be a record in itself".

"After reviewing the work of the government in the last three years and after consultations with the Home Ministry and the agencies and after consultations with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah, we have come to the conclusion that it is hard for the coalition to move forward in Jammu and Kashmir". The six-year term of the current Assembly ends in March, 2021. This has been a constant feature of Kashmir, too, this smearing of the distinction between cause and effect in the cycle of violence, in which state violence and separatist violence chase each other in a vicious spiral.

He also cited rising instances of terrorism and radicalisation as one of the reasons to pull the plug on the state government.

"Because the whole government does not belong to the BJP, there was a sort of discrimination which the people of Jammu and Ladakh were experiencing", he said. Mehbooba submitted her resignation after the BJP withdrew support. Governor's rule is implemented in India under Section 92 of the Constitution of Jammu and Kashmir.

The contents of the Governor's report were immediately sent to Suriname where the president was scheduled to land at 6.30 pm (3 am IST). "The damage will continue under President's rule (sic)", he tweeted.

The governor, N N Vohra, will take all key decisions to run the state on behalf of President Ram Nath Kovind. The meeting that started around 1:30 pm lasted for nearly half an hour, and was attended by chief secretary B.B. Vyas, principal secretary to the chief minister Rohit Kansal and the commissioner/secretaries from the law, finance, social welfare and general administration departments, apart from legislators from constituencies with an SC/ST population.

Cavs called Spurs about Leonard
Thus, everyone has been dreaming up their own Kawhi Leonard trade scenario with the Los Angeles Lakers . But he does not have a no-trade clause in his current contract , so the Spurs could trade him anywhere.

"This alliance was unholy". On the other hand, the PDP's support base in Kashmir Valley has eroded because it chose the saffron party as its ally, and because of the unending killings in the Valley over the last three years. "Uncertainties are there, but we are working on something and people will get to know about it", Gupta had reportedly said.

"After a meeting with BJP [President] Amit Shah, we decided that we can not continue with the PDP in the state". The issue also figured during the meeting of Modi, Shah and RSS leaders at the dinner.

He added that security forces were never stopped from neutralising the terrorists, who were infiltrating from Pakistan, and the government did not call it a ceasefire.

The annual pilgrimage is set to begin on June 28 and lasts till August.

Holding Mehbooba Mufti responsible for the current unrest in the Valley, Madhav accused her of non-cooperation and demanded Governor's rule in the state.
