BJP’s ‘betrayal’ a big political setback for Mehbooba Mufti

20 June 2018

Governor Narinder Nath Vohra will be presiding over the state for the fourth time.

The move came less than a year ahead of the 2019 general elections and a couple of months after the BJP had replaced its Deputy Chief Minister in the wake of outrage over Kathua rape incident. Shah had also met senior ministers from the state government, along with party in-charge Ram Madhav, in New Delhi on Tuesday morning.

Immediately after his news conference, senior PDP minister and party's chief spokesperson Naeem Akhthar told reporters in Srinagar that Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti would be submitting her resignation to Governor N N Vohra.

The Hindu nationalist BJP had entered into an unlikely alliance with a regional party after an inconclusive election in 2014 to govern the region where Indian forces have struggled to quell a freedom movement for decades.

Once known for being a foot-soldier who created the PDP from the grassroots in the region of south Kashmir, Mehbooba Mufti has lost her support base today.

"Terrorism, violence and radicalisation have risen and fundamental rights of the citizens are under danger in the Kashmir Valley", he said after a meeting with state BJP leaders and ministers who were summoned to Delhi with little notice.

Singh, the Lok Sabha MP from Lucknow, also reiterated the Modi government's resolve to ensure a complete end to militant activities in Jammu and Kashmir.

"Today, after destroying the state, BJP can not just run away from its responsibilities by pulling out of the alliance with PDP", he also said, reported Firstpost.

However, some people felt that an elected government was any day better than the Governor's rule. We are mourning the demise of democracy in the state. "We had to take a call for the interest of the nation", he said. "This is a surprise for us because we did not have any indication about their decision", Rafi Ahmad Mir, the PDP spokesperson, told ANI. Indicating that the alliance ended due to the BJP's persistence with a muscular policy in the Valley, Mehbooba Mufti said she did everything to take reconciliatory measures in Jammu and Kashmir. We had expected a good response from the Hurriyat.

She said PDP was in support of extending the unilateral Ramadan ceasefire but there were contrary statements coming from the other side.

Journalist Shujaat Bukhari's killing in cold blood was cited by BJP as final proof of Kashmiri separatists' desire to sue for war, spurning the intent behind the ceasefire during the holy month of Ramzan.

At no point during the meeting, however, was there the sense that Mehbooba had any idea about the BJP having made a decision to pull down the curtains on the government and end the "unholy" North Pole-South Pole alliance, the source said.
