Assembly dissolution: Lone challenges Mufti to approach court of law
Srinagar: Chairman People’s Conference, Sajad Lone Thursday challenged former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti to approach the court following the dissolution of the state Legislative Assembly by Governor Satya Pal Malik late Wednesday evening and get an order to revive it.
Sajad, in a tweet directed at Mufti, asked her to move the court and get an order to revive the assembly if she “feels slighted” by the decision that was taken by the Governor, following a high voltage political drama in the state politics on Wednesday.
“If @MehboobaMufti feels slighted y doesn’t she go to court. Let her approach the court and hopefully get an order to revive assembly—- and we hopefully will prove we have the numbers, on the floor of the assembly,” Sajad tweeted on Thursday.
Pertinently, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had faxed a letter to Raj Bhawan on Wednesday evening staking claim to form the government in alliance with Congress with ghost support from National Conference.
Sajad Lone, on the very same day, also staked a claim to form a government in the state with the support of the 25-legislator strong BJP and “more than 18” other lawmakers.
In a letter to Governor Satya Pal Malik, Lone, whose party has two MLAs, including himself had said he enjoys the support of more than required number of legislators in the assembly.
In another tweet, Sajad, while referring to the bid of forming a grand alliance by PDP, NC and Congress, apparently, said that it was not the end, as the there were more ‘exciting days’ to come.
“Uncles and aunties yet again came to their rescue. Inshallah more exciting days ahead,” he retweeted Barkha Dutt’s tweet with a comment.
