“My compliments to Governor Malik for not looking to Delhi & for not taking their instructions thereby stopping the installation of a government of the BJP & it’s proxies formed by horse trading, defections & use of money,” National Conference leader Omar Abdullah said in a tweet.
PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti, whose letter- expressing willingness to form a government was not received by the fax machine at the Governor’s office, tweeted, “Leaving aside the fax machine fiasco , good to see that governor Sb refused to take dictation from Delhi, rather opted for dissolution of assembly.
