BJP-PDP indulge in blame game, stalemate on J&K govt formation to continue

Indicating that the BJP and PDP have again failed to reach a consensus, the two parties continued to blame each other for the delay in government formation in Jammu and Kashmir.

Pinning the blame squarely on PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Ram Madhav said "any further demand" of its alliance partner was "not acceptable" to his party.

Talking to the media today, he said the stalemate between the two parties continued. He stated: "The situation in Jammu and Kashmir is not because of us, there are no further conditions. Stalemate continues. After Mufti's death, PDP had to choose a leader for [the] CM's chair, no change in the situation even today."

In a series of tweets, PDP countered Madhav's claims. "PDP is only asking BJP to walk the pre-agreed Agenda of Alliance on the existing status of J&K", read one tweet. "PDP did not seek anything outside the pre agreed Agenda of Alliance from the BJP", read another.

The war of words comes a day after Mehbooba met BJP President Amit Shah even as intense efforts began to form a government in Jammu and Kashmir.

Jammu and Kashmir has been under Governor's Rule since 8 January, following death of incumbent Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed.
