President’s rule comes into effect in J&K

After completion of six months of governor’s rule in Jammu & Kashmir on Wednesday, the state will come under President’s rule from midnight paving way for the Union Cabinet to take all policy decisions related to the militancy-hit state.

President Ram Nath Kovind signed the proclamation for imposition of central rule in the state, which plunged into a political crisis in June after the Mehbooba Mufti-led coalition government was reduced to minority following withdrawal of support by the 25-member BJP in the state.

The gazette notification issued on Wednesday said the President has received a report from governor Satya Pal Malik and after considering it and other information, he was “satisfied” that President’s rule in the state was needed.
