Lok Sabha has adopted a resolution on imposition of President’s rule in Jammu and Kashmir, with the Centre asserting that it was committed to democratic process in the state after the Opposition termed the decision to dissolve the Assembly as ‘unconstitutional’.

The Statutory Resolution on imposition of President’s Rule in Jammu and Kashmir, which requires Parliament’s approval, was adopted with voice vote amid din in the House.

However, after members insisted, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan allowed a discussion on the issue as a ‘special case’.

As opposition parties, including the Congress, Trinamool Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party questioned imposition of President’s Rule and dissolution of J-K assembly, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh told the House that no party was in a position to form government even a day before December 19 when the Governor took the decision.
