Doors are open for NC-BJP alliance, says Farooq Abdullah

Jammu: Even as uncertainty looms over the formation of government in Jammu & Kashmir, opposition leader and National Conference (NC) patron Farooq Abdullah said that his party is ready to tie-up with BJP to form government in the state.

“If such a proposal comes, then NC will call a Working Committee (meeting) and debate over it. If such a situation arises, NC can think over it as we have not closed the doors. Our doors are open,” Mr. Abdullah told the reporters.

Commenting over the uncertainty in the state over the formation of government, Mr. Abdullah said that, “Uncertainty has been created by PDP as BJP is ready to form the government and God knows what PDP is thinking, I hope they end this and the government would continue.”

NC patriarch urged both the parties to come forward and form government without any delay, and end political instability in the state.

His statement comes a day before the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) is holding its first core meeting after the demise of former J&K CM Mufti Mohammad Sayeed to discuss the prevailing situation.
