Early Times Report

JAMMU, May 18: Is the PDP-BJP coalition over? Is the BJP at the highest level contemplating a change in the state's civil secretariat by appointing some BJP leader from Jammu as Chief Minister? Will the PDP, which at present is leading the coalition government, endorse the reported suggestion that BJP man from Jammu should head the state government to tackle the restive Kashmir? What is the reaction of the PDP and the NC to the reported proposal?
These are some questions which are being raised and asked in the wake of what News 8 reported today morning. News 18 revealed that the Union Government could replace Mehbooba Mufti from the office of Chief Minister and this matter was discussed with her during her recent visit to Delhi, where she had meetings with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh.
"Discussion, according to top BJP sources, is going on the future of Mehbooba Mufti Government in the wake of the ongoing spurt in terror-related incidents in Kashmir. The BJP could appoint its own Chief Minister. This proposal has been discussed with Mehbooba Mufti, but she has refused to accept it," News18 today said in a statement.
"In Jammu & Kashmir, PDP-BJP coalition is in power.
Sources said that during her recent visit to Delhi, discussion on the office of Chief Minister took place. The proposal of rotational Chief Minister was also discussed and Mehbooba Mufti was told repeatedly that the appointment of Chief Minister from BJP would help the state government to end the unrest in the Valley, but Mehbooba Mufti didn't agree," the News18 further said.
Reacting to the possibility of Mehbooba Mufti stepping down and the BJP taking over the highest executive office, NC president Farooq Abdullah said that the PDP-BJP coalition Government had failed and the appointment of BJP Chief Minister would be of no help. "If the PDP could not deliver and maintain peace, how could the BJP," he asked. He said the best option available is the Governor's rule.
Impose Governor’s rule in the state and keep the Assembly in a suspended animation for some time, he said, and added that the PDP-BJP government has outlived its utility and the Governor’s rule was the only option, though not a good option.
"Changing horses midway won't help. The Government has become extremely unpopular and has lost the faith and support of the people. The imposition of Governor’s rule is not an ideal solution but in the present circumstances where the state is being pushed back to the uncertainty and turmoil of the early 1990, it is only plausible option.
The imposition of Governor’s Rule would calm down tempers and also make the administration to be perceived as politically neutral - allowing basic governance to be restored," Farooq Abdullah was quoted as saying.
