President Ram Nath Kovind approves Governor’s Rule in J&K with immediate effect

President Ram Nath Kovind today (June 20th, 2018) has approved the imposition of the Governor’s rule in the State of Jammu and Kashmir with immediate effect.

The decision has been taken a day after the BJP government in a press conference held in New Delhi has announced that they are withdrawing their support to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Jammu and Kashmir.

Later, Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti submitted her resignation to the Governor N.N. Vohra, saying that “I have told Governor we will not go into any other alliance.”

Following this, the Governor forwarded his report to the President recommending imposition of Governor’s rule in accordance with section 92 of the Constitution of Jammu & Kashmir.

As per section 92, in a situation of failure of constitutional machinery in the State, the Governor may by proclamation assume to himself the functions of the government for a period of six months, but the said proclamation can only be issued with the concurrence of the President of India.

The differences between the two parties have come in the forefront many a time on the approach to be adopted towards growing anti-India protest, separatist and local militants.

But the final nail in the coffin was when the rumors surfaced that the BJP ruled centre wants to resume anti-terror operations in the State, after a month-long suspension of the ceasefire during the holy month of Ramzan. While the PDP wanted the Centre to reach out to the separatist and give them more time.
