New Delhi, November 13 (KMS): Amid growing resentment against India and its forces, occupied Kashmir is unlikely to have an elected government, so to speak, anytime soon, and New Delhi may recommend a spell of President’s rule at the expiry of Governor’s rule on December 19.

Under the Constitution of Jammu and Kashmir, there is no provision for extension of Governor’s rule.

The six-month term of Governor’s rule comes to an end on December 19. »
