Srinagar, Indian-administered Kashmir - Mebooba Mufti has resigned as the chief minister of Indian-administered Kashmir after her coalition partner, the right-wing Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), pulled out of the ruling alliance.
"Although this was against the sentiments of the people, we entered into the alliance with the BJP after giving it a deep thought".

Madhav backed his party's decision to join hands with the PDP after the 2015 assembly elections, stressing the BJP's objectives were to restore peace in the state and encourage its fast development.
"We are mourning the demise of democracy in the state", Abdullah said. Since then, incidents have more than doubled over the last four years to 2017.

Since its formation in 1951, the BJP has maintained a hardline stance on the Kashmir issue and has stood for the repeal of Article 370 of India's constitution which grants special autonomous status to the state.
Both opposition parties, the National Conference (NC) and Congress, have so far made it clear that they won't support a coalition government in the state.
