The hunt continues for Jammu and Kashmir's new Governor
Hectic lobbying and search is on for the appointment of a new Governor for Jammu and Kashmir. Highly placed official sources close to Prime Minister Narendra Modi have told "Gustakhi Maaf Haryana" that the government wants to appoint a retired army officer as Governor to give stern message to the terrorists.

The portfolio of J&K Governor is very important and crucial for the BJP government after the fall of the coalition government headed by Mehbooba Mufti. 

By appointing a tough and strong personality Prime Minister Modi wants to give a strong message not only to the terrorists but also to the people across the country that his government is firm in tackling with terrorism. 

Supporters of GD Bakshi have already launched a campaign on social media demanding his appointment as J&K Governor. He has been defending the Indian army and condemning terrorists in strong words during TV debates for some time now.

Names of DS Suhag and DS Hooda are also being considered. BJP chief Amit Shah had recently met DS Suhag at his Delhi residence leading to speculations that he may be fielded by the party as its candidate for the Rohtak Lok Sabha seat to tame Deepender Hooda. 

DS Hooda is highly respected and had made it into news in 2016 for leading India's surgical strike. By appointing any one of them the BJP wants to score brownie points with the Jats who are unhappy with the party for not fulfilling its promise of reservation for the community in government jobs and educational institutions.
