India BJP pulls out of controversial Kashmir alliance

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and J&K Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti (19 April 2016)

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.

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 tenure was marked by an upswing of violence in the Kashmir valley.
