Srinagar: 
After the PDP-BJP coalition in Jammu And Kashmir collapsed on Tuesday when the BJP yanked support to Mehbooba Mufti's PDP, President Ram Nath Kovind has today approved Governor's Rule in the state. Governor NN Vohra on Tuesday evening forwarded his report to the President for imposition of Governor's rule.

The signs were there for months, but the break-up still surprised Ms Mufti, who handed in her resignation to Governor Vohra shortly after the BJP's announcement.

"Our agenda was healing touch, we can't treat Jammu and Kashmir as enemy territory," she told reporters. "It had become untenable to continue with the PDP government in Kashmir," said senior BJP leader Ram Madhav, defending the move that will leave the state under Governor's rule for the fourth time since 2008 and eight time since 1977.
