Keeping in view the overall situation, Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik on Wednesday dissolved the state assembly as both Jammu and Kashmir People’s Conference leader Sajad Lone and former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti staked claim to form government in the state.
The order came after both Mehbooba mufti staked a claim for the formation of the government in alliance with congress with outside support from National Conference, taking their collective total to 56. Followed by people’s Conference Chairman Sajad Gani Lone’s claim that he has the support of 26 BJP legislators and 18 others, which would cross the majority mark of 44.
Mehbooba earlier took to her twitter handle and wrote: “Have been trying to send this letter to Rajbhavan. Strangely the fax is not received. Tried to contact HE Governor on phone. Not available. Hope you see it @jandkgovernor.”
“Sending the letter also by mail,” Mehbooba wrote in another tweet.
Earlier, senior PDP leader Altaf Bukhari told media that National Conference, PDP and Congress have agreed to join hands to form a new government
