J&K Gover­nor Should Have gone for Floor Test

The Day After - - OPEN HOUSE - Kan­val­jeet Bamzai

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.
