Governor rule imposed in India-occupied Kashmir

Governor rule imposed in India-occupied Kashmir

Gen Rawat also said the change in the political scenario will not have any effect on security forces, who he said have never faced any restrictions on their work.

Though the polls are scheduled in April-May next year, it is possible that the Centre will pull the plug and bring forward the exercise to this year end. "We wanted the BJP to start the process of reconciliation in Kashmir and ease tensions with Pakistan", she added.

BJP's pullout from the ruling coalition in Jammu and Kashmir, triggering resignation by PDP chief minister Mehbooba Mufti, puts the focus back on the state.

"Yes, the meeting decided that continuing in the alliance (with the PDP) would hurt the party's chances in (the general) elections".

"It will be political rhetoric of how the BJP will save the situation in the northern region of the state", he said. The workers stood by all the odds.

The BJP is facing resentment from its supporters in Jammu over its handling of rape and murder of 8-year-old minor nomad girl in Rasana village of Hira Nagar in January this year. The month-long ceasefire in the valley witnessed a spurt in terror strikes in the region.

Last week, India rejected a United Nations report that accused it of having used excessive force in the disputed region to kill and wound civilians since 2016.

The fighting has left tens of thousands of people, mostly civilians, dead. Calling the coalition "untenable", BJP attributed the rise in terrorism, extremism and violence as the main reasons behind its decision to pull out of the coalition. "Shujaat Bukhari's killing is an example".

"The main issue was the fast deteriorating law and order situation in the Valley".

When the alliance was forged between then PDP leader Mufti Mohammad Sayeed and the BJP, numerous party's supporters saw it as a betrayal of its people and backers. BJP has 25 seats in J&K Assembly while PDP has 28, National Conference has 15, Congress 12, and others have Six (including Two Nominated).

Meghan, Harry to tour Australia, New Zealand
Her husband, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, turns 97 on Sunday and has retired from public duties. Meghan and Harry have stated their desire to jump right in and get to work in their new roles.

Mufti took over as the chief minister of the restive state after a delay of almost three months following the death of her father and PDP patron Sayeed in January 2015.

By going with the ideologically-divergent BJP, perceived also as being anti-Muslim, by a majority of the voters who strongly favoured the PDP for its pro-Kashmiri stance in the elections to pre-empt a sort of coup d'état.

BJP quit the coalition following a rift over the extension in the Ramazan ceasefire in the restive valley.

There are also fears the BJP may use the situation to fuel its 2019 Lok Sabha campaign.

In 2001, the state saw most (2,020) terrorist deaths and maximum security forces (536) lost their lives.

"The national parties have often used Kashmir as a laboratory to see through their experiments at larger level".

Senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal also took to Twitter and called the BJP an "opportunistic party".

The conflict-ridden state will now be under Governor's Rule, which means the BJP-led federal government will run the state for the next six months.

Mehbooba said she has sent her resignation to the governor and has clearly stated that she is not looking for any other alliance to form a new government with any other party.
