Jammu and Kashmir is under Governor's rule for the fourth time in the last 10 years after the BJP ended its coalition government with Mehbooba Mufti's People's Democratic Party (PDP), saying it was "untenable" to continue because of security concerns and rising terrorism. A stunned Mehbooba Mufti resigned as Chief Minister shortly after the BJP's announcement on Tuesday afternoon. Governor NN Vohra later recommended central rule to President Ram Nath Kovind, who was mid-air, on his way to Suriname, when the report went to him. When the president landed around 3 am IST (6.30 pm local time), he had the report. His sign-off came at 6 am.
