Srinagar: Leader of the opposition Gulam Nabi Azad Thursday said that the Jammu and Kashmir assembly was dissolved at the behest of BJP as they had failed to form government despite efforts for almost five months.
“For these 4-5 months, BJP tried to form their own government but they didn’t have majority. So they tried to break MLAs from other parties. When they saw that another govt could have been formed, BJP dissolved the assembly,” Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad told news gathering agency ANI.
Azad said that they don’t have any complaints from Governor and called governor Jammu and Kashmir Satya Pal Malik a ‘nice man’.
“We have complaints from central government that if they had to dissolve the assembly, they should’ve done it 4-5 months ago when they withdrew support from PDP,” Azad said.
