PDP Formed Alliance With BJP With Vision For Development: Mehbooba Mufti


Srinagar: A muscular policy cannot work in Jammu and Kashmir. That’s why we wanted a unilateral ceasefire. But unfortunately we didn’t get the appropriate response. Agenda for alliance with BJP was good relations with Pak: Mehbooba Mufti said after resigned.

The PDP-BJP coalition, which was wobbly from the start, flat-lined just days after the central government decided not to extend the Ramzan ceasefire on anti-terror operations. The peace initiative was Mehbooba Mufti’s idea. “We brought in unilateral ceasefire which brought a lot of relief to the people. We can’t have a muscular policy in Jammu and Kashmir… We weren’t a part of an alliance just for power,” Ms Mufti said.

The BJP has 25 lawmakers and the PDP has 28 in the 89-member state assembly, both far short of the majority mark of 45. The Congress, which has 12 members, said there is no question of an alliance with the PDP.
