J&K Assembly Dissolved

Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik has dissolved the state assembly as both Jammu and Kashmir People’s Conference leader Sajad Lone and former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti staked claim to form government in the state.

While Sajad Lone claimed he has the support of 26 BJP legislators and 18 others, which would cross the majority mark of 44, Peoples Democratic Party leader Mehbooba Mufti says she has the support of the Congress and the National Conference, taking their collective total to 56.

Ms Mufti has tweeted a letter that she has been trying to send to Governor Satya Pal Malik, which states that since she is not in Jammu currently, she will soon be meeting him to stake the claim for forming the government in the state.
