PDP trying to justify  'unholy alliance': NC

PDP’s rhetoric over development and governance is ridiculous. During PDP’s rule development came to a grinding hal

National Conference (NC) Monday said PDP’s assertions to justify its “unholy alliance” with BJP under the fig-leaf of J&K’s development are desperate attempts to justify the unjustifiable. “PDP has yet again sold its soul for a shot at the chief minister’s chair”, NC spokesman Junaid Azim Mattu said in a statement. 

He said the recent Rajya Sabha polls have exposed PDP’s blind opportunism. “The only negotiations that were held between PDP and BJP were about the CM’s chair and about sharing of portfolios. Everything else is an unimaginative lie. If both parties wholeheartedly supported each other in the Rajya Sabha polls, what is stopping them from forming the government?” Mattu asked.

“PDP’s rhetoric over development and governance is ridiculous. During PDP’s rule development came to a grinding halt,” he said and added that the stark contrast between PDP’s pre-election opposition to BJP and post-election infatuation with BJP represents yet another volte face by the party. 

“If BJP has to harm Article 370, they won’t find a better and more willing consultant than PDP. In assembly elections Mehbooba Mufti repeatedly called BJP a communal party and top PDP leaders sought votes against BJP. Today the same BJP moral sermonizers have become the middlemen between PDP and BJP and carry messages back and forth from J&K to New Delhi,” Mattu added.
