Shortly after the Governor of Jammu and Kashmir Satya Pal Malik dissolved the assembly, former chief minister Jammu and Kashmir, and vice president National conference Omar Abdullah on Wednesday said that dissolving the assembly within five minutes after Mehbooba Mufti stakes claim, cannot be coincidence.
Taking to his widely followed twitter handle Omar wrote: “JKNC has been pressing for assembly dissolution for 5 months now. It can’t be a coincidence that within minutes of Mehbooba Mufti Sahiba letter staking claim the order to dissolve the assembly suddenly appears.”
Reacting to the Mehbooba’s complaint on twitter, when she was not able to fax her letter to Rajbhavan, Omar said: “J&K Raj Bhavan needs a new fax machine urgently.”
Mehbooba tweeted: “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.
Pertinently, Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik has 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 claimed 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.
