Srinagar, Jun 30 (UNI) Jammu and Kashmir Governor N N Vohra has asked Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad to prove his majority on the floor of the Assembly by July seven.
A Raj Bhavan spokesman today said Mr Vohra, in a letter addressed to the Chief Minister, has asked him to prove his government's majority on the floor of the House on any date not later than July seven, in keeping with established conventions of parliamentary democracy.
Earlier, Mr Azad had said though he enjoyed the full confidence of the House even after the withdrawal of support by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), he wanted to prove the majority on the floor of the assembly.
In a letter to Governor Vohra, Mr Azad said he had offered to prove his majority on the floor of the House any time as decided by the Governor.
The Chief Minister said that following the withdrawal of support to his government by the PDP, a constituent of the ruling coalition, he continued to enjoy the support of a majority of the members and was ready for a floor test to dispel any misgivings.
