Opposition National Conference today criticised PDP and BJP for maintaining uncertainty over government formation in Jammu and Kashmir and asked the coalition partners to come clear on the issue without keeping the people waiting.
"If they cannot make the government, then they should make it clear so that we can take the next stand, whatever it is. Why keep people waiting in a situation where terrorism is all over," NC patron and former Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah told reporters here today.
"As far as I am concerned the point here is that the two (PDP and BJP) have the mandate. BJP here (in Jammu) and PDP there (in Kashmir). I would request them, for God's sake get on with their job," he added.
While targeting the two parties over the uncertainty, Dr Abdullah said, "People want a government, so that their difficulties could be removed. That is very important."
His comments came as the suspense continued for the 13th day over government formation with PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti keeping her plans secret.
The state is currently under Governor's rule following the death of the Mehbooba's father and then Chief Minister Mufti Muhammad Sayeed on January 7.
So, why should they have peace. But for the larger population, this is a menace," Dr Abdullah said.
He said "for the interest of the people and the government of the two sides, we need to get together and fight this menace with all the power that we have." PTI
