Jammu and Kashmir Congress chief G A Mir on Saturday claimed that the BJP was making desperate attempts to return to power in the state, days after it called off its alliance with the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
Mir said that any attempt to form government by illegal and unconstitutional methods of horse trading will be met with tough resistance.
“Any such attempt by any quarter to defeat the constitutional provisions of anti-defection law will be met with tough resistance by the people who would not accept any back door entry to power,” Mir said.
Terming the BJP-PDP alliance as unholy, the Congress leader said political forces and individual should desist from such alliance that could further deteriorate the political and security situation of the state.
“The consequences of the betrayal of mandate and formation of an unholy alliance by PDP-BJP against the nature of respective mandate of two parties, is before everyone. The political forces and individuals need to desist from such tactics otherwise they shall be responsible for any further deterioration in the overall worst political and security situation,” Mir added.
The state assembly is in suspended animation after the imposition of Governor’s rule after the fall of PDP-BJP government on June 19.
