If @rammadhavbjp is true to his word that there is no question of horse trading & clearly no new alliances are being formed then the assembly should be dissolved.

The BJP said it had become "untenable" for the party to continue in the alliance government.

Asked why he took the decision to ally with the PDP which is ideologically different than the BJP, Amit Shah said, "There could be no government without the BJP or the PDP". The frequency has increased after the imposition of Governor's Rule in the state. We've seen what kind of horse-trading happened in J&K under his party. In a surprise announcement yesterday, the BJP said it was withdrawing support to its alliance partner PDP, prompting Mehbooba Mufti to resign as the chief minister.

Omar hit back, saying he had no doubt about his MLAs and referred to the BJP's alleged horse-trading bids in Jammu and Kashmir.

According to an official communique, Chhattisgarh cadre IAS officer B V R Subrahmanyam was appointed as the Chief Secretary of the state in place of B B Vyas, who along with K Vijay Kumar, a former IPS officer and an anti-naxal expert, were named advisers to Governor Vohra.

UAE says delivering aid to Yemen's Hodeida
Previously, a Saudi military spokesman told the channel that forces were within six kilometers (four miles) of Hodeida's airport. Capturing Hodeidah would be the biggest victory for the Saudi-led coalition since the start of its costly intervention.

He said that the recent United Nations report on rights abuse in held Kashmir "reaffirms Pakistan's well-known position on the grave human rights abuses committed by India", read a statement issued by the Foreign Office. Instead, at the June 19 media conference, he cited Srinagar's "discrimination" against Jammu and Ladakh as one thing that displeased the BJP.

Though the BJP took the first step of breaking away from the alliance, it may have ill-conceived that this unilateral step will prove beneficial to them.

The break-up of the PDP-BJP coalition triggered celebrations in parts of the Valley, even as some people expressed apprehension that Governor's rule might lead to lack of transparency and worsen the situation in the state. Discrimination against Jammu is, actually, an old BJP slogan-only that it had lost sheen and substance of late when the region started getting equal political partnership in governance, ironically with the emergence of a party like the PDP.

The NC leader claimed that Gupta's statement hinted at the BJP's attempts to break other parties to form a government in Jammu and Kashmir.

Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Wednesday said his demand for dissolving the state assembly stems from the fact that the state of suspended animation it presently in helps in horse trading. They said the meeting will take place Friday evening.
