He said the decision was not abrupt and was taken after three month long deliberations in the larger interest of the nation.

Jammu and Kashmir Governor N N Vohra has called an all-party meeting in Srinagar on Friday to discuss the situation in the wake of the implementation of governor's rule in the state, officials said on Thursday.

"Operations were being carried out earlier as well". He said the army was given a free hand in the last three years which resulted in the elimination of 619 terrorists.

"We had no other option but to pull out of the government", he added. While BJP was in favour, PDP leaders wanted the ceasefire to be extended. "Uncertainties are there, but we are working on something and people will get to know about it", Gupta had reportedly said. "This means political sensitivity won't come in the way of operations", said a retired commander while speaking to HT.

"Infiltrators were pushed and innocents were targeted including a renowned journalist who was killed in the broad daylight". He also referred to the killing of police officers including DSP Mohammad Ayoub Pandit, who was lynched by a mob at Jamia Masjid in Srinagar a year ago.

"Whether you like it or not, you can not do anything about it (Governor's rule)". He also denied that the BJP was not waiting for any opportunity.


"Our party was ditched by BJP.For the time being it is a setback for us, but we will return with more power". Police, paramilitaries and army have done a commendable job in fighting the subversive forces and priority is restoration of peace and order in the state.

The BJP's expectations from the alliance in Jammu and Kashmir could not be fulfilled given the prevailing situation in the state, R K Singh said.

Asked why he took the decision to ally with the PDP which is ideologically different than the BJP, Amit Shah said, "There could be no government without the BJP or the PDP. Keeping it suspended has encouraged dalals", Omar said.

Subrahmanyam was named as Chief Secretary on Wednesday after his predecessor BB Vyas and Vijay Kumar, a senior security advisor with the Union Ministry of Home Affairs, were appointed as advisors by Vohra to help him manage the day-to-day affairs of the state.

On Tuesday, following the BJP's withdrawal, the PDP's Mehbooba Mufti submitted her resignation as Jammu and Kashmir chief minister to governor Vohra.

"We supported the PDP in restoration of normalcy".
