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.



The Governor of Jammu and Kashmir Satyapal Malik issued a proclamation on June 20,2018 under Section 92 of the Constitution of Jammu and Kashmir with the concurrence of the President of India, thereby assuming to himself the functions of the Government and Legislature of the State and making some incidental and consequential provisions. The State Assembly, initially kept in suspended animation was dissolved by the Governor on November 21,2018.

The proclamation issued by the Governor on June 20,2018 ceased on December 19 last year after six months. Under Section 92 of the Constitution of Jammu and Kashmir, there is no provision for further continuation of such Proclamation after six months.

Therefore, on the recommendation of Governor and having regard to the prevailing situation in the State, the President issued a proclamation promulgating President's Rule in the State under article 356 of the Constitution of India. 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.
