Jammu & Kashmir braces for guv rule

The report to the President is understood to  contain two or three suggestions including the option of a spell of governor’s rule in wake of no party being in a position to cobble up numbers required to form a government after the highly-fractured verdict in the assembly elections, sources said.

The governor’s report comes a day after Omar met Vohra in New Delhi on Wednesday night soon after his return from London after a 12-day visit to meet his ailing parents and asked him to relieve him as caretaker chief minister. Omar is reported to have told the governor that the state needed a full-time administrator to deal with the situation along the border with Pakistan and providing relief to flood-affected people in the Kashmir valley.

“Just to confirm I did meet governor Vohra sahib last night and ask him to relieve me as caretaker CM. I had agreed to stay temporarily,” Omar tweeted on Thursday.
