  • Live Updates Mehbboba Mufti Says J&K Not Enemy Territory Muscular Policy Don't Work Here

PDP spokesperson Mehboob Beig said it is up to the BJP now to handle the situation in the state. "Hence, we are withdrawing support".

In any case after the killing of senior journalist Shujaat Bukhari, there was no question of extension of ceasefire. The Jammu region is largely Hindu, while Ladakh is predominantly Buddhist.

BJP decision to walk out of the coalition government with PDP in J&K has been guided not just by the politics of the state but with an eye on the party vote base in the rest of the country in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. "We had always said muscular security policy will not work in J&K, reconciliation is key", she said. "We have now come out of the government".

This was for the first time since forming the government at the Centre that the BJP on Tuesday admitted that the terrorist related incidents had risen alarmingly in the state. Anti-terror operations would resume in full force, Singh said on Sunday.

But even before this past month, the two parties had been drifting apart, both locked into a war of words both publicly and privately, each blaming the other for massive mob violence and the rising militancy in Kashmir.

The withdrawal of support by the BJP led to the resignation by chief minister Mehbooba Mufti.

"After reviewing the work of the government in the last three years and after consultations with the Home Ministry and the agencies and after consultations with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah, we have come to the conclusion that it is hard for the coalition to move forward in Jammu and Kashmir". The PDP did not agree to it which established the point of no return.

PDP's Naeem Akhtar, said that the party will talk in detail at 5pm.

She also mentioned the unilateral ceasefire during Ramzan announced by home minister Rajnath Singh and Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Lahore in 2015. They were planning to launch "Operation All Out II" against the militants. In past months there have been several outbreaks of violence.

The PDP's decision to ally with the BJP was seen as controversial at the time.

Criticising the BJP, Thackeray said, "The BJP spread "lies" ahead of the 2014 general election and made false promises to people to win the mandate".

The PDP is the single largest party with 28 seats in the 87-member assembly followed by the BJP, which has 25 seats. For example, there was apprehension among people that once the BJP becomes part of the coalition government, there will be threat to Article 370. "The agenda is not abandoned", the party would say. The two ministers were subsequenlty sacked.

The leader of the NC, former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, is reportedly on his way to meet the governor.

With this announcement, Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad took a dig at BJP. He tweeted "so it has come to pass" after the news of the BJP pullout but has not commented since.
