Abstract:
Although modern Jammu and Kashmir has attracted the attention of scholars, political scientists all over the world, and a plethora of quality literature has been produced which thoroughly observes many dimensions of the politics and political culture of the state, the issue of governance and functioning of democratic institutions in the state had remained an under explored area of scholarship. Notwithstanding the fact that the post 1947 governance in the state has its bearing on the political dynamics, the issue of democratic governance has been referred only occasionally without any subjective analysis and detailed treatment. The present paper is an attempt to highlight the factors responsible for governance deficit in the state and also analyse how people in the state remained politically dispossessed and bereft of functional democracy and effective governance. Besides, this paper also analyses how governance deficit and ineffective functioning of democratic system in the state created alienation and remained the vital factor of insurgency that breakdown in 1989.
