The coalition government of BJP and PDP came to end. BJP pulled out the alliance due to the center decision of not to extend the Ramzan Ceasefire. In the light of coming Amarnath Yatra center government did not extend the Ramzan ceasefire. The BJP has 25 law makers and PDP has 28 lawmakers in the J&K Assembly.
Also on the Eve of Eid, senior journalist of Rising Kashmir Shujaat Bukhari was shot dead by terrorist in Srinagar. This faint the hope of an extension of ceasefire.
