The following individuals have served as Prime Minister or Chief Minister of the state of Jammu and Kashmir.[1] Due to its special status under the Indian constitution, prior to 1965, the state selected its own "wazir-e-azam" (prime minister) and "sadr-e-riyasat" (president). However, in 1965, the state constitution was amended, and the offices of prime minister and president were renamed chief minister and governor respectively.[2] These changes went into effect on 30 March 1965 when the ruling prime minister, Ghulam Mohammed Sadiq, was sworn in as the first chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir.
