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, 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 Mohammad Sayeed on January 7.

Yesterday, president of state unit of BJP Sat Sharma said the government will be in place very soon.

PDP has said Mehbooba is in the process of reviewing the implementation of the 'Agenda of Alliance' during the 10-month-rule of PDP-BJP government headed by her father and a decision would be taken in due course.

PDP has said it was "highly unlikely" that it would form the next government with BJP till "we receive concrete assurances on key issues flagged by our party leader Naeem Akhtar last week".
