BJP, PDP should part ways if unable to fulfil promises: Muzaffar Baig

Jammu (Jammu and Kashmir) [India], Sept. 8 : People Democratic Party (PDP) leader Muzaffar Baig on Thursday said although the people of Jammu and Kashmir trust the BJP-PDP alliance, if the coalition cannot fulfil the agenda on which it was formed, it would be better for them to part ways.

Baig said at first, when the two parties formed a government in the state, the alliance did not face any opposition from anyone, and urged both the parties to hold talks once the unrest in the valley is pacified.

"We joined hands with the BJP, which is correct, because the people of the nation elected it and so did the people of Jammu.

Nobody protested on the day we formed a government, because the people of the state trusted us that we will fulfil all the promises we made and would work according to the proposed agenda.

And now, the BJP-PDP alliance must introspect whether we are fulfilling all the promises," said Baig. "It shouldn't be like that the alliance came into existence, but there is no consensus between the two leaderships.

I will urge both the parties that after the unrest ends they should talk out things. The coalition went fine, the agreement which was made was good, but unfortunately we could not follow the agreement that well.

So, it is better to fulfil promises or part ways," he added. The unrest in Kashmir has so far shown no signs of simmering down despite continuous attempts by the Centre and the state government, as the curfew still remains in most parts of the valley entering its 62nd day.

The valley is on the boil ever since the security forces killed Burhan Wani, a militant commander of Hizbul Mujahideen, which led to a cycle of violence that claimed around 100 lives and left more than thousands, including security forces, injured.
