The Governor's decision came after both PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti and People's Conference leader Sajad Lone staked claim to form the government in the state.
The BJP has called for an urgent meeting with all its MLAs to decide the future course of action, BJP state president Ravinder Raina told “We wish that the Assembly elections in J&K should be conducted along with the Parliament elections,”

On Wednesday, Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik dissolved the legislative assembly in minutes after Mehbooba Mufti-led PDP staked claim to form the government with the support of Congress and National Conference. The Governor passed the order in exercise of the powers conferred upon him by Clause (b) of Section 53 of the Constitution of Jammu and Kashmir.

Shortly after Mufti staked claim to form the government with the support of Congress and NC, People’s Conference leader Sajad Lone also sent a letter to the Governor staking claim to form the government in Jammu and Kashmir with the help of 25-member BJP. Mufti, whose party has 29 MLAs, wrote to Governor S P Malik claiming the support of 15 MLAs of NC, 12 of Congress in the 87-member assembly.

The six-month tenure of the governor’s rule ends on December 18 which will be followed by President’s rule.
