Ram Madhav, the BJP national secretary in-charge of Jammu and Kashmir, said continuing in the alliance had become untenable. Mehbooba Mufti became a latest victim of this regional discord, thanks to her insistence on the resignation of two BJP ministers, who had rallied behind the Hindu Ekta Manch, which was demanding a CBI inquiry into the rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl in Kathua district.
The BJP, on the other hand, has now strengthened its rule in the state since the governor does what New Delhi tells him, Jacob said.
In a press briefing that didn't last even 10 minutes, Mufti said the alliance wasn't formed in a quest for power. This alliance had a bigger motive- unilateral ceasefire, PM's visit to Pakistan, withdrawal of cases against 11,000 youth.
Now, the current state government will be dissolved, initiating Governor's rule in the state under Article 92 of Jammu and Kashmir's Constitution.

Madhav also said that over 600 terrorists have been neutralized in the last three years to stop radicalization.
