PDP Breaks Silence Says Will Review Previous Performance Before Forming Govt
Breaking silence over the delay in forming government, the Peoples Democratic Party today said that it will review the nine months coalition with BJP during the tenure of late Mufti Mohammad Sayeed before taking a final call to from the government.
“Mufti Sahab had a vision for making Jammu and Kashmir a modern state. Due to his death, his vision is yet to be realised. The party under the leadership of Mehbooba Mufti will need to review how much we have succeeded to fulfil Mufti Sahab’s vision so far,” PDP senior leader and former education minister, Naeem Akhtar told Shaherbeen in an interview this evening.
Akhtar ruled out any meeting with any political party for government formation so far.
“No formal meeting has been held yet under the leadership of Mehbooba Mufti,” he said.
Akhtar said that PDP believe that Kashmir is a political issue and needs political space and the vision late Mufti had needs to be considered for the future government formation.
“We were expecting that Prime Minister Narender Modi will take some strong decisions towards Kashmir due to full majority in New Delhi. So far nothing happened and Mufti sahib was expecting same. So we are following our late leader and firm to achieve his mission,” he said.
He said that keeping in view the changing situation, the party will analyse whether our ministers can fulfill their governance agenda smoothly.
He said: “Our governance agenda were making smart cities, return of power projects, and other developmental projects. We will analyse whether we can work smoothly on the governance agenda as all is still pending.”
Asked whether the party has taken any decision to enter into a new alliance with BJP, he said PDP had not formed the government with BJP for power.
“PDP’s main aim is not power. We always wanted to represent people of Jammu and Kashmir to fulfill their rights and expectations which they have due to the country. Today, our party has the same stand for the people,” he said.
