Deputy Chief Minister, Kavinder Gupta had earlier said that all the BJP ministers have handed over their resignations to Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti.
The BJP has pulled out from its ruling alliance with the Peoples Democratic Party, thus paving the way for the President’s rule in the state.
““Taking into account, the sovereignty and integrity of the country we have decided to part ways with the PDP,” BJP general secretary, Ram Madhav, said.
“There were two major objectives when we joined the alliance – peace and progress in the state”.
He claimed that “terrorism and radicalisation” were on the rise in the state.
“It has become untenable for BJP to continue in the alliance govt in JK,” Madhav said during a press conference in Delhi”.
