In a sudden development, the Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik dissolved the state assembly in the evening , soon after both People’s Democratic Party (PDP) chief Mehbooba Mufti and People’s Conference Sajad Lone staked claim to form the government.

Arch-rivals Mehbooba Mufti and the National Conference had joined hands to form the next government in Jammu and Kashmir along with the Congress. The parties had found themselves on the same side after a perceived risk to the special status of the state granted by the constitution.

The PDP chief, who is in Srinagar, tweeted the letter to the Governor. Her tweet read: “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”.

The governor’s advice for dissolution of the assembly will pave way for elections in the state within the next six months. The tenure of the governor’s rule is ending next month, which will be followed by President’s rule.

Governor Satya Pal Malik had met Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday and on Tuesday, he met BJP chief Amit Shah, sources said.
