Srinagar, Nov 26: Former Chief Minister and Peoples Democratic Party president Mehbooba Mufti on Monday said that she won’t approach the Supreme Court to challenge the decision of the Governor Satya Pal Malik to dissolve the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly.
It may be recalled that the Governor Malik last week had ordered dissolution of the Assembly after Mehbooba Mufti and the Peoples Conference chairman Sajad Gani Lone staked claims to form the government in the state. Mehbooba had claimed that she enjoys the support of National Conference and Congress parties, while Lone had stated that BJP and 18 other legislators are with him.
“Some sincere suggestions from well wishers for me to go to court against Governor’s dissolution of Assembly. PDP, NC, INC had come together to safeguard state interests. It is my considered opinion that we must go to people’s court which is superior to any other forum,” Mehbooba wrote on twitter
