Srinagar: Jammu Kashmir Congress President Ghulam Ahmed Mir Wednesday said that Congress is ready to support both PDP and National Conference if they are willing to form Government in the State.
Mir said,” it will be a greatest achievement if both National Conference and People’s Democratic Party will join hands in the interest of people”. Both PDP and NC have held talks on the subject of government formation. These talks are informal and hopefully these parties will conduct formal talks now,”.
If Article 35A brought the two parties on the same platform why they should maintain distance now. “BJP is making inroads while the remarks of Governor Satya Pal Malik that he will not dissolve Assembly till 2020 have kept the options of horse trading open. It is a serious situation and for the sake of people secular minded parties like PDP, NC and Congress should join hands,” Mir said adding that Congress party will surely support PDP and NC to check ‘communal’ and ‘divisive’ politics of Bhartiya Janata Party.(cns)
