Srinagar: In reaction to Altaf Bukhari’s willingness for tie up with National Conference for government formation to fight Article 35-A and communal forces strongly, senior National Conference leader and MLA Kangan Mian ALtaf said National Conference is open for a joint struggle with PDP but the decision to ally with PDP for forming a government lies with Omar Abdullah only.
Altaf said, “The suggestion of NC and PDP joining hands for a joint fight on Article 35-A and against rise of communal forces in Jammu and Kashmir made by the PDP’s senior leader is a welcome move but the decision to form a government in alliance with PDP lies with Omar Abdullah only. Forming a government and stitching an alliance with PDP is not an easy job but very difficult keeping in view the present political scenario in the state. So only Omar Abdullah can talk about for forming a government in alliance with PDP whether for Article 35-A or for fighting communal forces in the state.”
