Governor’s rule in J&K

President Pranab Mukherjee approves Governor N. N. Vohra's recommendation

President's rule was imposed on Jammu and Kashmir on Friday.

President Pranab Mukherjee approved the recommendation of J & K Governor N. N. Vohra as deadlock continued in the State over formation of the new government after voters handed a fractured verdict in assembly elections, government sources said here.
