A day after J&K Governor N N Vohra, in a first for a Governor in the state, participated in a security review meeting with Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, opposition National Conference (NC) Monday called it a “surrender of mandate and sanctity of the Chief Minister’s chair”.
“It was evident that the CM is no longer the operational head of the Unified Headquarters and is merely summoned to play a supporting role to the Governor,” NC provincial president Nasir Aslam Wani said.
“It is a complete surrender by the CM’s office by unofficially relinquishing its authority. Mehbooba Mufti has been reduced to a mere figurehead by New Delhi,” he added. ENS
