Srinagar, November 22 (KNO) : CPI (M) senior leader and MLA Kulgam, Muhammad Yousuf Tarigami on Thursday said that the dissolution of state legislative assembly amid reports of government formation in Jammu and Kashmir was unconstitutional, saying that the Governor Satya Pal Malik should have appreciated the political parties for coming together to form the government. Addressing a presser here at his Gupkar residence, Tarigami said that Governor instead of dissolving the State assembly should have called the political parties regarding the formation of new government here and should have appreciated them for coming together to form the new dispensation in the State.  According to KNO correspondent, Tarigami said, “The decision of Governor to abruptly dissolve the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly was taken in haste and not keeping in mind the constitutional spirit. "What was the need to keep the State assembly under suspended animation instead of dissolving it earlier? When there was a possibility of formation of new government then why assembly was dissolved. Governor should have seized the opportunity," he said, adding that the decision by New Delhi to dissolve the assembly was taken for vested interests as they don’t want to see any non-BJP government in the State. “The BJP government in centre got so unnerved with the talks for formation of a popular government in infancy stage, that they dissolved the state assembly,” he said, adding that unfortunately constitutional procedures were not followed. “The Governor, who had declared days ago that the assembly would not be dissolved, lost no time in going for dissolution,” he said. CPI (M) is more concerned about the principles involved. “This procedure has been adopted in the past also which eroded the trust of common people in democratic institutions. May be the Governor took the decision on the instructions of ruling party in New Delhi. Unfortunately, whatever suites ruling party in Delhi is being imposed in Jammu and Kashmir and Governor’s latest step only confirms it,” he said. Tarigami further said that any decision being taken by the New Delhi which suits them is unacceptable to the people. MLA Kulgam further asked the political parties to unite not for the votes but for the protection of people and the special status of the State. “There is a need to get united for the protection and well-being of the State,” he added.(KNO)
