The BJP on Tuesday pulled out of its alliance with Mehbooba Mufti’s People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Jammu and Kashmir.”It has become untenable for the BJP to continue its alliance government in Jammu and Kashmir, hence we are withdrawing” BJP general secretary Ram Madhav announced.
He added that restoring peace in Kashmir and encouraging fast development in Jammu and Kashmir were the objectives with which BJP formed government in the state with PDP.
Ram Madhav also said that whatever was feasible has been done for the state’s development by the Modi government.
He added that still terrorism, violence and radicalisation have risen and fundamental rights of the citizens are under danger in the Valley.
He added that despite support from the Central government, PDP failed to control the situation.
Ram Madhav also said that keeping in mind the larger interest of India’s integrity and to bring the deteriorating situation in the state under control, it would be apt to hand over the governance to the governor of J&K.
He said that BJP have even appointed an interlocutor for the state to talk with all the stakeholders and added that the central government has done whatever the state government had sought.
The union Minister said that even if Governor rule is imposed in the Jammu & Kashmir, government’s efforts to fight terrorism will continue.
He said that PDP has not been successful in fulfilling its promises and Centre did everything for the Valley trying to put a full-stop to the ceasefire violations by Pakistan.
