The cat is finally out of the bag. Both PDP and BJP are gradually inching closer to form a stable govt in Jammu and Kashmir.
On Friday when PDP cleared names of two party leaders for the forthcoming Rajya Sabha polls on February 7 it triggered fresh round of speculations here in the corridors of power that the party leadership has finally settled down to contest the Rajya Sabha polls in alliance with mainstream political party.
Though no formal announcement was made by the PDP about the seat sharing arrangement with any other political party but according to political observers, closely following the political developments in the state after the fractured mandate was handed over by the voters in the state, the two major political parties may join hands together after formulating a common minimum programme for the welfare of the people of all three regions of the state.
During the day Dr Jitendra Singh while speaking to reporters in Jammu clearly hinted that channels are on with all the stake holders to form a stable govt in the state. He claimed the party has authorised senior party leaders to negotiate on behalf of the party.
“It is not correct on my part to speak out of turn and create more problems. Let them do their job”, he added.
PDP Spokesman Naeem Akhtar also reacted cautiously after clearing the names of the party candidates. He clearly hinted that to ensure victory of the party candidates it is necessary to enter in to seat sharing arrangement with a political party. He,however, avoided naming any political party.
