Ashok Koul said, "BJP did not betray PDP but the decision to withdraw support to PDP was taken by the central leadership in the larger national interests keeping in view the worsening law and order situation in Kashmir Valley".

A BJP leader said, "The party president is arriving Jammu to pay homage to the founder member of Bharatiya Jana Sangh Shyama Prasad Mookherjee on his martyrdom day".

Referring to the imposition of Governor's rule in the state after the BJP pulled out of its alliance with the PDP, he said, "We don't think there will be any impact". "BJP's policy on Kashmir will never change". After three months, his daughter Mehbooba Mufti took over as CM-on April 5.

The BJP's decision to come on board with PDP was well reasoned, as it seemed appropriate and far-sighted.

Jammu and Kashmir Governor N N Vohra has called an all-party meeting in Srinagar on Friday to discuss the situation in the wake of the implementation of governor's rule in the state, officials said on Thursday. As political observers said pressure from the RSS led to the nullification of the March 12 directive, former CM Omar Abdullah of the Opposition National Conference flayed the development.

Singh, the Lok Sabha MP from Lucknow, also reiterated the Modi government's resolve to ensure a complete end to militant activities in Jammu and Kashmir.

The PDP is seen as a party sympathetic to separatist groups, and has long demanded the removal of a draconian law that gives Indian forces sweeping powers to search, enter property and shoot on sight. As the saffron party was its partner, Kashmir polity got divided and had to depend on mandate from Jammu-where the PDP (like the NC) has very little base-to form the government.

In response to the recent loss of lives in the Valley, despite Centre's imposition of Ramzan ceasefire, he said big attacks had happened on Eid during past as well. "Had it been our aim, there were still three more years left to govern the state", he said. "Uncertainties are there, but we are working on something and people will get to know about it", former Deputy Chief Minister and senior BJP leader Kavinder Gupta told reporters. They remained in government for 1,174 days and 914 killings took place in that period.

Omar had on Wednesday called for the dissolution of the Assembly, saying it would thwart alleged plans and attempts by the BJP to lure away rival party legislators.
