After receiving concurrence from the President of India, Governor N.N. Vohra issued a Proclamation today to impose Governor’s Rule in the State.

The Raj Bhavan spokesperson stated that consequent to the sudden passing away of Chief Minister Shri Mufti Mohammad Sayeed on 7th January 2016, the process to form government had commenced and intimations were still awaited about the respective positions of PDP and BJP.

Considering the likelihood of some more time being taken before government can be formed, with the approval of the President of India, Governor’s Rule has been imposed in the State with effect from 8th January, 2016, under Section 92(1) of the Constitution of Jammu and Kashmir.
