Omar calls for fresh polls in J&K as BJP hints at surprise

Speaking at Zee Media's India ka DNA Conclave 2019, Shah said, "We could have taken the decision after 6 months after if there were political considerations to break the PDP-BJP alliance".

A BJP leader said, "The party president is arriving Jammu to pay homage to the founder member of Bharatiya Jana Sangh Shyama Prasad Mookherjee on his martyrdom day".

In a surprise move, the BJP on Tuesday pulled out of the three-year-old ruling coalition with the PDP in the state that was placed under governor's rule Wednesday morning.

Governor Narinder Nath Vohra will be presiding over the state for the fourth time. "We don't have any kind of political interference".

"No, Modiji's Kashmir policy is correct".

Mr Omar said while he had no doubt about the loyalty of his lawmakers, "we all know what happened in the PDP after Mufti Sb (former chief minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed) died & the sort of pressure that was applied to Mehbooba Mufti".

"The PDP & BJP have been watching Bollywood movies for political strategy. Keeping it suspended has encouraged dalals", Omar said. Instead, at the June 19 media conference, he cited Srinagar's "discrimination" against Jammu and Ladakh as one thing that displeased the BJP.

The PDP is seen as a party sympathetic to separatist groups, and has long demanded the removal of a draconian law that gives Indian forces sweeping powers to search, enter property and shoot on sight.

The NC leader claimed that Gupta's statement hinted at the BJP's attempts to break other parties to form a government in Jammu and Kashmir.

The deteriorating law-and-order situation in Jammu and Kashmir was the main reason for the BJP to pull out from the government and pave way for Governor's rule to ensure restoration of peace and normalcy, state party chief Ravinder Raina on Wednesday said.

The break-up of the PDP-BJP coalition triggered celebrations in parts of the Valley, even as some people expressed apprehension that Governor's rule might lead to lack of transparency and worsen the situation in the state. She wanted it to continue, whereas given the security situation in the state, the BJP was not willing to continue with ceasefire. "Had it been our aim, there were still three more years left to govern the state", he said.

He said that the Central government has already sent the funds for Kashmiri pandit rehabilitation and other projects but they remain unspent.
