The Lok Sabha today passed, amid din, a Statutory Resolution approving the proclamation of President’s Rule in Jammu and Kashmir.  However, some of the opposition members later objected to it. 

Speaker Sumitra Mahajan allowed a brief discussion on it. Participating in the discussion, Shashi Tharoor of Congress opposed the Resolution saying that the state was put under Governor’s Rule without any floor test. He said it was done despite the fact that Congress, PDP and National Conference had come together to form the government. He termed the Governor’s Rule as unconstitutional and improper. 

Saugata Ray of Trinamool Congress also opposed the Central rule in the State terming it arbitrary and unconstitutional. He demanded immediate election in the state.

Supriya Sule of the Nationalist Congress Party said the government should explain the reason behind the imposition of its rule. Mohammed Salim of CPI-M accused the NDA government’s ill-thought and misleading policy with regard to the State and demanded establishment of a popular government.

Intervening in the debate Union Minister Jitendra Singh explained the political situation in the state after the last Assembly poll and present situation of imposing President’s Rule. He alleged that the current situation in the state is the outcome of series of blunders committed by successive Congress governments. He also questioned the Jammu and Kashmir parties for not participating in local body elections.

The Minister said BJP was always ready for holding elections but it should be in the true sense of polls. The discussion is underway.
