NEW DELHI: The central government has begun its search for a new Governor for Jammu and Kashmir as they have decided not to continue with NN Vohra, NDTV reported.
Vohra has handled the state for more than a decade but according to report will not be given another term.
“Search is on for a new face and one of the contenders is a former home secretary,” the report quoted sources saying.
Governor’s Rule was imposed on Jammu and Kashmir since June 20, after the BJP ended its coalition government with Mehbooba Mufti’s People’s Democratic Party (PDP), saying it was “untenable” to continue because of security concerns and rising terrorism.
“Centre and Mr Vohara do not see eye to eye on the formation of a new government in Jammu and Kashmir,” sources told NDTV.
