Jammu: National Conference today hit out at PDP and BJP over the political uncertainty in Jammu and Kashmir and said fresh elections should be held if the two partners are unable to form the government. “PDP and BJP has created political uncertainty in Jammu and Kashmir. The combine has created a Constitutional crisis in the state,” NC’s provincial president Devender Singh Rana told reporters here. “If they (PDP and BJP) are unable to form the government, they should clear their stand with Governor (N N Vohra) so that the Assembly is dissolved and fresh elections are held,” he said.
Rana said if PDP and BJP have felt that “10-month-long rule on the basis of ‘Agenda of Alliance’ had failed and people have been deceived, they should go to the people again. We are ready for polls.”
Feeling that elections had become “inevitable”, Rana saidNC cadres should get ready for polls. “After protracted drama over the formation of government, the PDP is seeing now the coalition as unpopular while BJP is crushing its core agenda to be in the government,” he said.
He said the “opportunistic partners” have brought the state to such an impasse where public interest has been hit by personal ambitions. “People have been watching the political developments with disgust and are wondering as to how the coalition partners could trample the mandate they had given for steering the state to peace, progress and development,” he said.
Rana expressed surprise over the “realization dawning” on PDP after nearly a year of alliance with BJP. “During electioneering, they kept telling voters something different and vowing not to allow RSS footprints in the Valley,” the NC leader said and asked the PDP to “shun hypocrisy and make public admission of their wrong judgement, misgovernance and poor performance.”
