Cabinet nod to extension of President's Rule in J&K for  another six months

New Delhi, Jun 12 (UNI) Based on the prevailing situation in the border state as brought out in the report of Jammu and Kashmir Governor, the Union Cabinet has approved the extension of President's Rule in Jammu and Kashmir for a further period of six months with effect from July 3, under article 356(4) of the Constitution.



A resolution seeking approval of Parliament for the same will be moved in both the houses of Parliament during the forthcoming session, Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Jawrekar said on Wednesday while briefing the media.

The present term of President's Rule is expiring on July 2, and the Governor has recommended that the President Rule in the State may be extended for a further period of six months with effect from July 3, 2019.

Subsequently, a Resolution approving the subject Proclamation by President was passed in the Lok Sabha on December28, 2018 and in the Rajya Sabha on January 3 this year.
