Governors rule imposed in Jammu and Kashmir

New Delhi: The Centre has recommended Governor's rule in Jammu and Kashmir after the major parties failed to form government in the state, an IBN report said on Friday.

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh had received J&K Governor NN Vohra's report on Thursday night on the government formation in the state.

Jammu and Kashmir went to polls along with Jharkhand and the counting of votes for the two states took place on December 23. While government in Jharkhand has already been formed, Jammu and Kashmir has been deprived of a popular government as no major party - PDP (28 seats), BJP (25 seats). National Conference (15) and Congress (12) - could cobble up the magic figure of 44 seats in the 87-member state Assembly.

In his report, Vohra is understood to have recommended imposition of Governor's rule saying on the ground that immediate formation of government seems difficult in the state.
