President approves imposition of governor rule in Jammu and Kashmir

Srinagar: A day after the BJP has pulled out alliance with the ruling PDP, President Ram Nath Kovind has given approval for imposition of governor’s rule in Jammu and Kashmir with immediate effect, media reports said.

The Governor’s rule in Jammu and Kashmir was imminent after the three-year-old state government collapsed today with the BJP pulling out of its alliance with the PDP.

Media reports said that the Union Home Ministry has received a report from Jammu and Kashmir Governor N N Vohra and necessary action is being taken on it, according to a ministry spokesperson.

Vohra forwarded his report to President Ram Nath Kovind for the imposition of Governor’s rule in Jammu and Kashmir after the BJP pulled out of the coalition government and Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti tendered her resignation.

Former chief minister and opposition National Conference (NC) vice-president Omar Abdullah on Tuesday ruled out extending support to any political party for formation of government in Jammu and Kashmir.

Meanwhile congress leader G N Ahad has also ruled out any support to any party to form government in J&K.
