Former Home Minister of India says Gujarat model of democracy appeals J&K Governor

Srinagar: Former Home Minister of India and Congress veteran P Chidambaram on Thursday claimed that for BJP-appointed Governor Satya Pal Malik thinks that parliamentary democracy was “outdated”.

A day after Malik’s dramatic move dissolving the House shortly after the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), National Conference and the Congress came together to stake claim to form a government, Chidambaram took to Twitter to express his outrage.

“As long as no one staked a claim to form government, Jammu and Kashmir Governor was happy to keep Assembly under suspension. The moment someone staked a claim, he dissolved the Assembly.

“Parliamentary democracy standing on its head,” said the former Union Finance Minister.

“The Westminster model of democracy is outdated. Like in all other matters, it is the Gujarat model that has appealed to the J&K Governor,” said Chidambaram.

Besides, both National Conference’ Omar Abdullah and PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti, have also questioned the decision.
