President’s Rule Imposed After Governor’s Rule Expires In J&K


Srinagar: As six months of Governor’s rule expired on Wednesday, President’s rule has been imposed in the state of Jammu and Kashmir.

Mehbooba’s government came under fire after BJP pulled out the three-year-old ruling coalition with PDP and called for Governor’s rule in the state, forcing her to resign as the chief minister.

The BJP decided to pull out of the coalition government on June 19 owing to the former’s soft posturing towards separatists and stone-pelters.

Mufti’s party was also reportedly against the Centre’s decision to revoke and not extend the temporary suspension of anti-terror operations during the holy month of Ramzan.

After the BJP pulled out of the coalition government, Governor’s Rule was imposed in the state and the assembly was put under suspended animation.
