Governor dissolves Jammu and Kashmir legislative assembly after Mehbooba, Lone stake claim

Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik dissolved the state assembly on Wednesday evening after rival claims to form government from former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti and People's Conference leader Sajad Lone, who is backed by the BJP. Ms Mufti said her Peoples' Democratic Party has the support of arch-rival Omar Abdullah's National Conference and the Congress. The state has been under Governor's Rule since June, when the BJP ended its ruling alliance with Ms Mufti.
