The 3 years old long political alliance between the BJP and the PDP in Jammu and Kashmir ended on the last Tuesday post the saffron party decided to pull out leading to the resignation of, Mehbooba Mufti, the present chief minister.
Regarding this as a partnership with PDP “untenable”, the BJP cited a rise in terrorism, violence, radicalization and the killing of journalist Shujaat Bukhari + are the reasons following its decision.
Here is a look at the reactions of a variety of political parties and leaders following the political disorder and turmoil in the Jammu and Kashmir-
Mehbooba Mufti, PDP
I am not shocked. We didn’t do this alliance for power. + This alliance was having a bigger motive- unilateral ceasefire, PM’s visit to Pakistan, withdrawal of cases against 11,000 youth are some of the objectives that were being achieved.
Ram Madhav, BJP
“We had to respect the mandate of the people. If we would not have formed government at that time, governor’s rule or Presidential rule would have been imposed in the Valley. We had an alliance with them just for the mandate that was given by people.”
Rahul Gandhi, Congress
“The opportunistic BJP-PDP alliance set fire to J&K, killing many innocent people including our brave soldiers. It cost India strategically and destroyed years of UPA’s hard work. The damage will continue under President’s rule. Incompetence, arrogance and hatred always fail.”
Omar Abdullah, National Conference
“We will not form an alliance with any political leader. We have not been approached nor has anyone approached us. I have told the governor that since no party has the mandate to form the government, he will have to impose governor’s rule in the state. Efforts should be made to normalize the situation in the state at the earliest.”
P Chidambaram, Congress
“Who the next Governor will be is crucial. A hawk as Governor will make the situation worse.”
Ghulam Nabi Azad, Congress
“Whatever has happened is good. People of J&K will get some relief. They (BJP) ruined Kashmir and have now pulled out, the maximum number of civilian and army men died during these 3 years. That question does not arise (on forming an alliance with PDP).”
Manish Tewari, Congress
”By pulling the plug on BJP-PDP alliance NDA/BJP leadership has confessed its complete inability to comprehend and contend with complex national security issues. Unmitigated use of Hard Power will only compound alienation brought about by the adventurism of the NDA/BJP Govt at Centre.”
Ahmad Mir, PDP
“We tried our best to run the government with BJP. This had to happen. This is a surprise to us because we did not have any indication about their decision.”
Uddhav Thackeray, Shiv Sena
“It took you 3.5 years and sacrifice of around 600 soldiers to realize that you should take back your support in Jammu and Kashmir +. When you know how that government functions, how could you even support them for so long.”
Sanjay Raut, Shiv Sena
“This alliance was anti-national and unnatural. Our party chief had said, this alliance won’t work out. Had they continued with it they would have had to answer in 2019 Lok Sabha election.”
Sitaram Yechury, CPM
“Such coalition should not have happened. These two parties have no similarities. They coming together was an opportunistic move to be in power.”
Arvind Kejriwal, Aam Aadmi Party
“After ruining it, BJP pulls out of Kashmir. Didn’t BJP tell us that demonetization had broken the back of terrorism in Kashmir? Then what happened?”
