MLAs in safe zone

MLAs in safe zone

Governor Satya Pal Malik has made it clear that he won’t be dissolving the State Legislative Assembly as he wants the MLAs to carry on with the developmental works in their constituencies.
Assembly not getting dissolved would mean that the people who are trying to form the government in Jammu and Kashmir would continue to do so. “There is no issue with the Assembly. I don’t want to unnecessarily tinker with it. There is a reason for it. The elected people are still members of Legislative Assembly. They have been provided with funds to serve the people. So, even though there is not an elected government in place, the political process is going on, as the process includes political activity as well. Keeping this in mind, the Assembly will not be dissolved,” the Governor Malik has said.
The Governor’s assertion has provided a lifeline to the BJP leaders in the state and the PDP rebels to keep their hopes alive about cobbling the numbers and coming up with a political dispensation in the state.
Many people believe that the governance has improved in the state during the past five months and Governor’s rule is a better option. Not many people seem interested in having a political dispensation at place. Since the day Governor’s rule has been imposed many things have changed on the ground and it looks like that something or other is happening at all the fronts.
Even people sitting in New Delhi don’t seem that keen about giving politicians a chance at least for time being. But BJP leaders and the PDP rebels can keep on trying till the Assembly remains intact. They can keep their hopes alive and work out the permutations and combinations which can fall at place. They have got the much needed breather.
