Jammu And Kashmir: BJP Breaks Alliance With CM Mehbooba Mufti's PDP; demands Governor's Rule in state

Speed News Desk | Updated on: 19 June 2018, 15:31 IST

The BJP has pulled out its alliance with the Mehbooba Mufti's PDP or People's Democratic Party in Jammu and Kashmir. BJP's Ram Madhav demands Governor's Rule in state

The decision came after BJP president Amit Shah met with the party's lawmakers from Jammu and Kashmir in Delhi.

According to reports, the rift between the two parties widened following the central government's decision to resume anti-terror operations in the state after Ramzan. 

We have taken a decision, it is untenable for BJP to continue in alliance with PDP in Jammu & Kashmir, hence we are withdrawing, says BJP lawmaker Ram Madhav in a press conference

Terrorism, violence and radicalisation have risen and fundamental rights of the citizens are under danger in the Valley. ShujaatBukhari's killing is an example, says BJP lawmaker Ram Madhav in a press conference.

Keeping in mind larger interest of India's security and integrity, fact is that J&K is an integral part of India, in order to bring control over the situation prevailing in the state we have decided that the reigns of power in the state be handed over to the Governor, Ram Madhav added.

The PDP of Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti asserted that the Centre needed to reach out to the separatists, reports NDTV. The Centre argued that the separatists lost an opportunity as they did not take a cue from civil society, the sources said. 

On the eve of Eid, senior journalist Shujaat Bukhari was shot dead by terrorists in Srinagar and Indian Army Gunmen Auranzeb was also abducted and murdered by the terrorists. With it, any faint hope of an extension of the ceasefire ended.

In a series of tweets on Sunday, Union home minister Rajnath Singh announced that security forces have been directed to resume operations.
