Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee president G A Mir-led delegation today met Governor N N Vohra at the Raj Bhawan here and submitted a Memorandum demanding imposition of Governor’s rule in view of the total failure of the state government on all fronts which has lost the confidence of the people.
The delegation apprised the Governor of the worsening situation as is evident from the large scale violence and the unprecedented lowest ever poll percentage and the total failure of the government to provide conducive atmosphere and security environment to ensure successful conduct of elections.
Congress leaders also alleged in a complaint about the partisan role of the present dispensation in the conduct of elections and there is large scale resentment against the present ruling coalition.
“The present government should step down as it has no moral authority to remain in power, otherwise the situation would further worsen which would be difficult to retrieve,” the Congress delegation told the Governor.
The party demanded that any future election should be conducted under the Governor rule in order to ensure free, fair and successful conduct and the Election Commission should take on board the Opposition to assure free, fair and transparent conduct of elections.
