Congress party on Tuesday ruled out any support to PDP following the pulling out of BJP from the coalition government in Jammu and Kashmir.Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said there was no question of tie-up with the PDP, India Today reported.
Whatever has happened is good. People of J&K will get some relief. They (BJP) ruined Kashmir & have now pulled out, maximum number of civilian & army men died during these 3 years. That question does not arise (on forming alliance with PDP),” said Azad, as reported by ANI news agency.
BJP General Secretary Ram Madhav, while addressing a press conference in New Delhi, announced, “We have taken a decision, it is untenable for BJP to continue in alliance with PDP in Jammu and Kashmir, hence we are withdrawing.”
The differences between the BJP and the PDP cropped up following the Centre’s decision to resume anti-militancy operations in the state, which were suspended during Ramadhan.
