Srinagar : Former Union Minister and Congress leader P. Chidambaram on Thursday said that it was “Gujarat model” that has appealed to the Governor Satya Pal Malik to dissolve Jammu and Kashmir Assembly.
Taking to twitter Union Finance Minister P. Chidambaram wrote: “As long as no one staked a claim to form a government, J&K Governor was happy to keep Assembly under suspension. The moment someone staked a claim, he dissolved the Assembly! Parliamentary democracy standing on its head!”
“The Westminster model of democracy is outdated.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,” Chidambaram tweeted.
Earlier National Conference president Omar Abdullah and PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti, have also questioned the decision.
