Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik has favoured holding of early election to the Assembly, saying he does not think a popular government can be formed out of the present house after the collapse of the BJP-PDP coalition dispensation in June. Wonder what the main political parties i.e Congress, BJP, National Conference and the PDP would have to say on the Governor’s remark .

The state has been under Governor’s rule since Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti resigned as chief minister in June following the withdrawal of support by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to her government.

“The decision will be taken by the Centre and the Election Commission. My job is to discharge dual responsibility (of Governor and administrator) which I will continue to do… I wish that elections are held at the earliest,” he said. The tenure of the assembly ends only in 2020.
