Srinagar: After PDP leader Mehbooba Mufti in Jammu and Kashmir, the leader of the People’s Conference Sajad Lone also claimed to form the government with the support of BJP. After this, governor Satyapal Malik dissolved the Jammu-Kashmir assembly. Governor Satyapal Malik said that this action has been taken as per the relevant provisions of the Constitution of Jammu and Kashmir. This information has been given in an official statement. Earlier Mehbooba Mufti had said in a letter, which was given to Governor Satyapal Malik that the PDP is the largest party in the state assembly, which has 29 members. She wrote, “You must have heard in media reports that Congress and National Conference have also decided to support our party for forming a government in the state. The number of members of the National Conference is 15 and the Congress has 12 MLAs. So our collective number is 56. “

Mehbooba said in her letter, “Since I am in Srinagar this time, I will not be able to meet you immediately and it is to inform you that we will soon send a claim to form the government in your state. Would like to meet at the convenience.

Significantly, for the 87-member assembly of Jammu and Kashmir, elections were held in five phases between November 25 and December 20 in the year 2014, in which the then ruling National Conference was defeated by PDP and BJP. After this PDP and BJP made a strong alliance and cross the majority mark and made the government. 

After the fall of the BJP-PDP government in Kashmir, no other party did not claim to form the government. The National Conference and BJP demanded Presidential rule in the state. PDP was not even in the race. Congress has already said that there is no question of going with the PDP. Of course, the only option was the President’s rule. Meanwhile, the Governor of Jammu and Kashmir sent his report to the President. He had recommended imposing President’s Rule in Jammu-Kashmir.
