SRINAGAR: Former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti on Friday met state Governor N.N. Vohra and “impressed upon him the need to safeguard Article 370 & Article 35A”. Her government fell last week as BJP walked out of it, pushing the state to President’s rule.

“Met Governor N. N. Vohra today to thank him for his guidance & support & to wish him all the best. Impressed upon him the need to safeguard Article 370 & Article 35A, for which we had been fighting a case in the Honorable Supreme Court,” she tweeted Friday evening.

She further said that she requested the Governor “to look into the Kathua case so justice is served & also to protect the Gujjar & Bakarwal communities so they aren’t harassed in the guise of an anti-encroachment drive.”

BJP’s walk-out from the J&K government just ahead of the Lok Sabha elections 2019 has been described by many as part of the saffron party’s well-thought out national electoral strategy. Hours after the fall of the government, the central government has sent indications that the Army was going to take touch actions to check violence in the state.
