"There should be President's rule in her place ...she is like tail of a dog, which can't be straightened." Swamy said.

“Mehbooba kabhi sudhregi nahi” (Mehbooba will never change,)” said Swamy and added, “She has old links with terrorists”. He said the BJP formed a coalition government with Mehbooba on the hope she will “reform” herself.

His comments come at a time when the Centre and PDP-BJP coalition government in Jammu and Kashmir are trying hard to bring normalcy in Kashmir.

The failure of the all-party delegation headed by Home Minister Rajnath Singh in cutting any ice with the separatists, who are spearheading the nearly two-month long protest shutdown, has come as a big setback to peace efforts in Kashmir.

The Valley has been witnessing unending violence ever since Hizbul Mujahidden terrorist Burhan Wani was killed in an encounter on July 8.

The authorities imposed curfew-like restrictions in the old city areas of Srinagar and some other parts of the Kashmir Valley. A youth was killed on Tuesday in fresh clashes between protestors and security forces in Anantnag district, taking the death toll in the ongoing unrest in Kashmir to 73 even as normal life remained disrupted for the 60th consecutive day.
