‘Agenda of alliance must be honoured’: PDP

Srinagar : Senior PDP leader Naeem Akhtar on Monday said that the agenda of the PDP-BJP alliance must be honoured as it was formulated for the betterment of the people in the state.

“We believe that the agenda of the alliance should be honoured because it is for betterment of Jammu and Kashmir.There is no discussion going on (with BJP). Talks were held for two months before we went into the alliance,” Akhtar told ANI.

Meanwhile, Jammu and Kashmir Governor N.N. Vohra today sent a letter to both parties to clarify their stance on government formation in the state.

The chief minister’s seat has been lying vacant for the last three weeks since the death of Mufti Mohammad Sayeed on January 7.

A core group of the BJP met this morning in Jammu to discuss the issue of government formation. The PDP meeting is scheduled to be held in Srinagar.

The PDP had earlier indicated that it might consider opting out of the alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party if the bipartisan agenda decided upon fell short of expectations in letter and spirit.

Mehbooba had yesterday said the party will take a call on government formation as and when it was confident that the vision and mission of Mufti Mohammad Sayeed will be carried forward. (ANI)
