Governor’s rule won’t affect ongoing military operations in J&K: Army Chief

#BJPdumpsPDP: J&K CM Submits Resignation

Hours later, state chief minister and PDP leader Mehbooba Mufti submitted her resignation.

The coalition government was formed in 2015 after extended and hard negotiations, since the two parties hold diametrically opposed views on many major issues, including the law that exempts Indian military personnel from criminal prosecution in the violence-wracked Himalayan region.

"I don't think that the ceasefire was a mistake".

Senior BJP leaders, both in the state and at the centre, said that resumption of anti-terrorist operations after the Ramzan ceasefire was the final bone of contention. The PDP should not have joined hands with the BJP in the first place.

"No, Modiji's Kashmir policy is correct". She (Mehbooba Mufti) also tried, but it can be a matter of assessment of how successful she has been.

Omar had on Wednesday called for the dissolution of the Assembly, saying it would thwart alleged plans and attempts by the BJP to lure away rival party legislators.

When contacted, Vijay Kumar told TNM, "I would not like to say much at this point, except that I look forward to working under the Governor and the great teams and assets already in place in Jammu and Kashmir".

The BJP, which had allied with the regional People's Democratic Party (PDP) in 2015 to rule India's only Muslim-majority state, urged a federal response to the increasing terrorism and violence in a territory that is also claimed by neighboring Pakistan.

Other pro-India political parties said the alliance was bound to collapse, given the two parties' different political ideologies. There are many views about security and development activities, which created differences between the two sides.

National Conference (NC) vice-president Omar Abdullah today termed the breakup of the PDP-BJP alliance as a "brilliant fixed match", and charged the two parties "crafted their divorce" and "scripted it to perfection" after taking cue from Bollywood movies.

Retired IPS officer K Vijay Kumar has been appointed as an Advisor to the Governor of Jammu and Kashmir governor along with IAS officer BB Vyas, the Chief Secretary of the state.

"Any new alliance talk is very hard at this stage". Discrimination against Jammu is, actually, an old BJP slogan-only that it had lost sheen and substance of late when the region started getting equal political partnership in governance, ironically with the emergence of a party like the PDP.
