J&K Governor Should Have gone for Floor Test
Events over the last few days brought Jammu and Kashmir front and centre. This time, the headlines weren’t about violence or the turmoil, but instead were about mainstream politics and government formation. Enough has been written about the events that led to two competing attempts to fax letters to the Governor. The decision of Governor Satya Pal Malik to dissolve the assembly without giving either side a chance to prove their ability to command a stable majority on the floor of the house will also be debated for years to come.
