Demand for state Assembly dissolution by JKNPP amid horse-trading
The former minister, who was leading the demonstration, said his party will not budge and demonstrate till the state Assembly is dissolved and fresh elections are not announced.
The Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party (JKNPP) activists carrying placard gathered at Exhibition Ground here and staged a demonstration.
"The government has fallen and the Assembly has been placed under suspended animation which is totally wrong. The constitution states that if any of the political party is not in a position to form the government, the Assembly needs to be dissolved," JKNPP chairman Harsh Dev Singh told reporters.
"In present situation, all the political parties have made it clear that they are not ready to form the government and only BJP leader Kavinder Gupta had said they are doing something… an uncertainty has gripped the political circles about what the BJP is doing behind the scene," the JKNPP leader said.
The former deputy chief minister had yesterday reportedly said, "I don't think a new government will be formed anytime soon. Uncertainties are there, but we are working on something and people will get to know about it."
"We would like to appeal to Governor N N Vohra to dissolve the Assembly immediately," he said.
