Jammu and Kashmir Governor N N Vohra called All Party Meeting (APM) in Srinagar on Friday afternoon to discuss the prevailing political and security situation in the state, where Governor rule was imposed on Wednesday.
The Governor exercising his power later placed the Legislative Assembly under suspended animation.
Mr Vohra held meetings with senior officials, secretariat employees union and others besides senior Army, paramilitary and police officials since the imposition of Governor’s rule after President Ram Nath Kovind accepted his recommendations.
Official sources told UNI that Mr Vohra has invited leaders of all political parties for APM here in the afternoon tomorrow. Though no agenda was given to leaders, but overall situation arising in the wake of imposition of Governor rule would be discussed.
Communist Party of India (M) senior leader and MLA Mohammad Yousuf Targami confirmed to UNI that an invitation has been received. “Since I am in New Delhi, the party will be represented by another leader in the APM,” he added.
The Governor’s rule, 8th since independence, was imposed in the state yesterday following resignation by Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti after coalition partner BJP pulled out from the ministry on June 19.
As no party or parties staked claim to form the next government in the state, the Governor placed the Assembly under suspended animation.
However, National Conference vice-president Omar Abdullah, demanding dissolution of the assembly and holding of fresh elections, alleged that BJP will indulge in horse trading to form the government in the state.
