Here are some of the main reasons why Governor Malik arrived at the decision to dissolve the Assembly:

  1. The impossibility of forming a stable government by the coming together of political parties with opposing political ideologies including some which have been demanding dissolution of the Assembly
  2. With a fractured mandate in the Assembly, it is not possible to form a stable government comprising like-minded parties. The coming together of such parties is nothing but an attempt to gain power rather than to form a responsive government.
  3. Reports of extensive horse-trading and a possible exchange of money in order to secure the support of legislators belonging to widely diverging political ideologies just to be able to form a government. These activities are not healthy for the democracy and vitiate the political process.
  4. Serious doubts about the longevity of any such arrangement where there are competing claims of majority.
  5. The fragile security scenario in the state of where there is a need to have a stable and supportive environment for security forces which are engaged in extensive anti-militancy operations and are gradually gaining control over the security situation.
