Nov 22, 2018 09:08 AM IST India India

Governor Satya Pal Malik has defended his decision to dissolve the Jammu-Kashmir assembly, saying he could not allow an “unworkable alliance” the right to form the government in the state. Speaking to CNN-News18, Malik added that PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti should have sent him the letter staking claim to government formation a day before the Eid holiday at Raj Bhavan. Asked about conspiracy theories over a ‘broken’ fax machine at Governor House, Malik replied that “sometime even water heaters don’t work at Raj Bhavan”.
