J&K Assembly dissolved after rival alliances stake claim to form govt

Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satyapal Malik dissolved the State Assembly last evening after rival alliances led by  PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti and People’s Conference leader Sajjad Lone staked claim to form the government.

Meanwhile, Jammu and Kashmir Governor  Satya Pal Malik today said that formation of a stable new government in the state was an “impossibility” as parties with opposing political ideologies “including some which have been demanding the dissolution of the Assembly” were coming together.

He termed such an alliance as “an attempt to gain power rather than to form a responsive government. In an exclusive interview to ANI and DD News, Governor Malik said that he had been receiving complaints about the past 15 days of horse trading & that MLAs were being threatened. He defended his decision to dissolve the state assembly and said that the Election Commission will decide when polls will be held in the state.

Governor Malik said that PDP Chief and former J&K Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti herself complained that her MLAs were being threatened while other party said there was planning of distribution of money.  Malik said that he could not have allowed this to happen and hence was left with no alternative but to dissolve the  State Assembly.

J&K Governor said that whatever he did was in the interest of the common people of J&K State. He said that when these parties having opposing political ideologies saw things slipping out of their hands, they came up with an unholy alliance to form a government which would never have been stable.

Meanwhile, the core group meeting of the state unit of  Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is underway in Jammu wherein the party leaders are discussing the future strategy in the wake of the dissolution of State assembly. BJP state President  Ravinder Raina has said that party is in favour of holding  Assembly elections in the State along with parliamentary elections
