Jammu and Kashmir Deputy CM Nirmal Singh blames Pakistan for creating unrest in the state

Referring to waving of Pakistani flag and stone pelting in Jammu and Kashmir, Deputy Chief Minister Nirmal Singh on Sunday said that neighbouring country wants to break the PDP-BJP alliance as it wants to ‘derail’ the development works initiated by the government in the state.

“A large number of people came out to vote during the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly Election and gave a mandate to the PDP and BJP to form government in the state,” Singh said. “Pakistan wants to derail the development programmes initiated by this government by breaking the alliance. But the alliance and the people of the state would not let the neighbouring country designs to succeed,” he said.

The J&K Deputy CM was speaking at the sidelines of the ‘Rasam Kriya’ programme in memory of Swadesh Chopra, the wife of Hind Samachar Group of Newspapers’ Editor-in-Chief Vijay Kumar Chopra. She passed away after prolonged illness on July 7.

“We have received reports indicating that Pakistan is planning to break the PDP-BJP ties and hinder development works of the government for which there are incidents of stone pelting on security forces and waving of the neighbouring nation’s flag,” Singh said. To a question on the alliance between the two parties, the Deputy CM said that, “The moment BJP feels that our alliance partner PDP is not acting against the anti-national elements, we will pull our party out of the alliance.”
