RS approves President’s proclamation for J&K

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday said the government had no objection to holding Assembly election in Jammu and Kashmir along with the Lok Sabha poll later this year if the Election Commission (EC) so desired.Replying to a discussion related to a statutory resolution on the President’s proclamation under Article 356 with respect to J&K, which was approved by the House after a debate, Mr. Singh said holding polls was the EC’s mandate and that the Centre would provide the necessary security forces for enabling the same.Countering the Opposition’s charge that the Congress, the National Conference and the PDP were not allowed to form government after the PDP-BJP government fell, Mr. Singh asserted that there had been no such conspiracy. He added that it was not the first time that Governor’s rule had been imposed in the State, stating that on one occasion it had remained in force continuously for six years.
