J-K Governor asks Azad to prove majority by July 7June 30th, 2008 - 10:56 pm ICT by ANI
Srinagar , June 30 (ANI): Jammu and Kashmir Governor N. N. Vohra on Monday asked Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad to prove his majority on the floor of the Assembly by July 7.
Meanwhile, Azad today said that he is ready to prove the majority of his government at anytime in the State Assembly.
Yesterday, he informed Governor about the majority he enjoyed on the floor of the house, despite the 18-member People’s Democratic Party (PDP) withdrawing its support to the Congress- led Government on Saturday over the transfer of forestland to the Amarnath Shrine Board.
The Congress has 21 members in the 87-seat assembly and is backed by two CPM MLAs and eight Independents.
The term of the State Government expires on November two.
Azad is hopeful that his government will last its full term.
The opposition National Conference has announced that it will not support the State Government.
The National Panthers Party, which has four members, does not enjoy a good relationship with the government after Azad kept its MLAs out of his ministry.
Only a split in either the National Conference or the PDP may save the State Government, as the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Jammu Mukti Morcha are unlikely to support the Congress during the floor test.
The Chief Minister has appealed to the people to restore normalcy in the valley.
The situation in the valley continues to be tense as the action committee on land transfer and other political outfits demand revocation of the Government’s order on the transfer of land to the Shrine Board.
According to reports a complete shutdown is being observed in Jammu against the eruption of violence aimed at disrupting the Amanath yatra and the Government decision to take over the yatra arrangements from the Shrine Board. (ANI)
