SRINAGAR: Former Union Minister Yashwant Sinha today called on National Conference vice-president Omar Abdullah and discussed the prevailing situation in Jammu and Kashmir.

The State was placed under Governor’s rule on Wednesday, a day after the BJP withdrew support to its alliance partner PDP, prompting Mehbooba Mufti to resign as chief minister.

Sinha called on Abdullah at the former chief minister’s residence here, a National Conference spokesperson said.

He said Sinha discussed the prevailing situation in the State as well as recent political developments with Abdullah.

According to the spokesperson, Sinha said the restoration of peace, a democratic and representative system of governance in the State was of utmost importance. (AGENCIES)
