Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram said on Saturday that there is a growing clamour for governor’s rule in Jammu and Kashmir.

“Glad more people have realised PDP-BJP (Peoples Democratic Party-Bharatiya Janata party) government is a disaster,” Chidambaram said in a tweet.

“The honourable course for... CM of J&K (Mehbooba Mufti) is to snap the coalition with BJP and make peace with the people,” he added.

“If that means a spell of governor’s rule, so be it,” Chidambaram said.

The Kashmir valley has been on the boil since the April 9 Srinagar Lok Sabha byelection was marred by violence in which eight people were killed.
