There has been intense lobbying in the Congress ever since Rahul Gandhi resigned last week with the seniors suggesting that a veteran should take over and be assisted by one or more young working presidents.
Vikramaditya Singh, the PDP’s face in Jammu, wrote to Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti: “It is no longer possible for me to be part of a party that continues to disregard the demands and aspirations of Jammu region.”
Singh said it was time to revisit the education system, integrate rich Indian spiritual values in it and extend infrastructural support for life-long learning. He identified the four pillars of learning as — learning to know (gyanyog), learning to do (karmyog), living together (sahyog) and learning to be.
Considering the situation that has developed in last few months, "my personal view is that next step has to be immediate imposition of Governor's rule so that entire security, political and regional situation can be revisited", he said in a statement.
