In view of the Governor’s rule in Jammu and Kashmir, the Niti Aayog meeting with the officials of Jammu and Kashmir government and NGOs has been shelved, a senior official said.

The meeting, which was scheduled on June 22 in Srinagar, is likely be postponed to a convenient date in July.

Niti Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant was scheduled to lead the Niti Aayog delegation, which among other things was also supposed to discuss the developmental activities in the Aayog’s two identified aspirational districts Baramulla and Kupwara.

The state, however, was on Wednesday placed under Governor’s rule for the fourth time in the last decade after the BJP withdrew support to its alliance partner PDP, prompting Mehbooba Mufti to resign as the chief minister and leading to the collapse of her government.
