Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister and PDP president Mehbooba Mufti on Wednesday said that her party, Congress and National Conference has set aside difference to protect Article 35 A and prevent horse-trading.
“The BJP had started engineering defections in other parties for furtherance of its political motives“…and we three parties — NC, PDP and Congress — have decided to come together setting aside our differences on some issues for protecting Article 35A and stopping horse-trading amid tinkering with laws concerning political identity of J&K.”
Mehbooba, according to the report, said that the talks are on between Congress, National Conference and PDP.
She said the proposed alliance of the three parties would work for protecting Article 35A and stop tinkering with the laws concerning the political identity of the state.
Replying to a question on the choice of Chief Minister, Mehbooba said: “PDP will discuss the issue with its legislators, senior leaders and even grass-root level workers and name the candidate with consensus for the position of Chief Minister. It will take some time.”
