Mehbooba Mufti to submit her resignation to Guv shortly: PDP leader

SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti will submit her resignation to Governor NN Vohra shortly after the PDP’s coalition partner BJP pulled out of the ruling alliance.

“The chief minister will be submitting her resignation to the governor shortly,” senior PDP leader Naeem Akhtar said.

With the PDP-BJP coalition falling apart, the State might come under Governor’s rule, which will be for the fourth time in the last 10 years.

Governor’s rule was imposed in July 2008 following the resignation of then chief minister Ghulam Nabi Azad in the wake of the PDP pulling out of the coalition Government with the Congress over the Amarnath land row.

The State was under Governor’s rule in December 2014, following the hung verdict in the Assembly polls that year.

Governor’s rule was again imposed in the state in January 2016 following the death of then Chief Minster Mufti Mohammed Sayeed, as his daughter Mehbooba Mufti had shown reluctance to continue the alliance with the BJP. (AGENCIES)
