India BJP pulls out of Kashmir alliance

BBC

The Chief Minister of the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir has resigned after the ruling Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) pulled out of a coalition government with her party, reports BBC.

The BJP said the three-year alliance with the People's Democratic Party (PDP) had become "untenable" in the wake of increasing violence. The PDP's decision to ally with the BJP was seen as controversial at the time. Its time in power was marked by rising violence in the Kashmir valley.

Most recently, influential Kashmiri journalist Shujaat Bukhari was killed by unidentified gunmen as he was leaving his office in Srinagar last week.

Mr Bukhari's death was cited as one of the reasons for the BJP pulling out of the alliance.

The decision also comes days after the United Nations's human rights office called for an independent inquiry into human rights violations in both parts of Kashmir, run respectively by India and Pakistan. The uneasy rule of the coalition partners saw increased violence and protests against Indian rule, with civilians often clashing with security forces.

After influential militant Burhan Wani was killed by Indian forces in July 2016, more than 100 civilians lost their lives in clashes during a four-month-long security lockdown in the valley.
