NEW DELHI -- Senior Congress leader P. Chidambaram said on Saturday there is a growing clamour for Governor's rule in Jammu and Kashmir.

"Glad more people have realised PDP-BJP (Peoples Democratic Party-Bharatiya Janata party) government is a disaster," Chidambaram said in his tweet.

"The honourable course for... CM of J&K (Mehbooba Mufti) is to snap the coalition with BJP and make peace with the people," he added.

"If that means a spell of Governor's rule, so be it," Chidambaram said.

The Kashmir Valley has been on the boil since the Srinagar-Budgam Lok Sabha by-election of 9 April when security forces shot dead eight protesters.

A re-poll on 13 April also saw violence including the killing of a youth in Srinagar.
