J&K Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti resigns

Prime News, National, Srinagar, June 19:- Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti resigned on Tuesday, putting the militancy-affected state into a political crisis after the Bharatiya Janata Party ended its alliance with her People’s Democratic Party, television news channels reported.

“It has become untenable for the BJP to continue with the alliance in Jammu and Kashmir,” said senior BJP leader Ram Madhav at a press conference held in New Delhi today.

“Given the security situation, and the need to handle the situation, we feel Governor’s rule was necessary,” said Madhav, referring to the state possibly being under the central government’s administration.
