New Delhi, Mar 18 (ANI): The BJP on Friday held the PDP responsible for the deadlock over government formation in Jammu and Kashmir, saying it is for the Mehbooba Murfti-led party to elect a leader and form the government without imposing any new condition for the same.
BJP leader Ram Madhav told ANI the situation still remains the same, adding the PDP has to stop coming up with new issues every now and then.
“The delay in government formation is not because of us, we have said repeatedly that the only difference in the situation at the ground level is that Chief Minister of the state respected Mufti sahab is no more. The PDP was to elect another leader in place of Mufti sahab. Let PDP take a decision on that, we will support them and form a government. But PDP apparently has other issues in mind,” said Madhav.
“We conveyed to PDP that let the government be formed then all the issues will be addressed but PDP has its own story. We will not accept any new conditions,” he added
PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti yesterday met BJP president Amit Shah in the national capital but the agenda of the meeting was not made clear.
Both sides maintained silence on the meeting. Sources, however, said that it was part of the intense efforts being undertaken by the two parties before resuming the coalition
Reportedly, the PDP has toughened its stance after Mufti Mohammed Sayeed’s demise by seeking concrete plans for the state’s development before the coalition could be resumed. However, this has irked the BJP, which wants the alliance to continue without any new condition. (ANI)
