SRINAGAR, JUNE 19: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday pulled out of its ruling alliance with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Jammu and Kashmir.
Reports said the decision was taken by the BJP party president Amit Shah after meeting with the party’s ministers in the state.
“It has become untenable for the BJP to continue in the alliance government,” Bharatiya Janata Party leader Ram Madhav told the media in New Delhi.
“Terrorism, violence and radicalisation have risen and fundamental rights of the citizens are under danger in the Valley. ShujaatBukhari’s killing is an example.”
PDP and the BJP had formed the alliance in 2014 after they emerged as the biggest parties with 28 and 25 seats respectively.
Governor’s rule is now likely to be imposed on the state.
