Jammu, Jan 15: Jammu and Kashmir Governor N.N. Vohra on Friday rescinded his earlier order summoning both houses of the state’s bicameral legislature on January 18 for the budget session.
“Governor N .N. Vohra has rescinded his earlier order dated December 11, 2015 whereby the Legislative Assembly and Legislative Council of the state were summoned to meet at Jammu on January 18, 2016,” said an official statement issued here.
A Raj Bhavan spokesperson said the the cancellation had been necessitated as the legislative assembly has been kept under suspended animation after imposition of Governor’s Rule.
Jammu and Kashmir was put under Governor’s rule on January 8 after no political party staked claim to form the new government following the death of Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed on January 7.
