With the new government yet to be formed after the demise of Chief Minister Mufti Mohammed Sayeed, National Conference leader Omar Abdullah today wondered “who is governing” Jammu and Kashmir as there has also been no formal declaration of governor’s rule.

“More than 48 hrs after Mufti (Moahmmed Sayeed) Sb’s (sahab’s) demise, no formal declaration of Governor rule & no Govt in place so now I have to ask who is governing?”, the former chief minister wrote on Twitter.

Sayeed breathed his last at AIIMS in Delhi on Thursday morning and his daughter and Peoples Democratic Party president Mehbooba Mufti has shown unwillingness to take oath as CM till the customary four-day Muslim mourning period is over.

Governor N N Vohra yesterday wrote separate letters to Mehbooba and state president of BJP Sat Paul Sharma to clear their stand on formation of new government in the state.

Sayeed headed the PDP-BJP coalition government formed in March last year.

    I offer Hafiz to discuss oneness of religion preached by prophet Muhammad claiming it thus conve by about 1.25 lac preachers sent by God alongwith the same preaching by Krushna, as teacher of Arjun, claiming unison in God as cliamed by Gabriel in Quran.lt;br/gt;Hafiz knows that military in stan has not studied this oneness of religion and shall respect Modiji honouring it and so asks for a war before stan military is guided to truth of praising per Al Hamdu Li-Allah, for Omnipresence of Allah in Modiji.

    The Anti-India stance by Articles in J and K Consution is reason for unemployment in KASHMIR, as high cost tourism has uplifted few, who control main political parties in vally. It is time that Consution of India be availed to Kashmiries, as opponents have caused terrorists prevail when common poor Kashmiries seek friendly uplifting as of all Muslims in India. It is time that Parliament pes resolutions to end seperatism by the vested interest in Kashmir.lt;br/gt;-Ramesh
