Srinagar, April 14:
In what appears to be a major roll back of its high moral ground and the pitch for Kashmir resolution , the People’s Democratic Party on Saturday announced that its alliance with BJP will continue .
“ There is no threat to the government, PDP and BJP are on the same page as the BJP has shown it by taking a decisive action against its ministers ( Chander Prakash Ganga and Lal Singh who had demanded CBI inquiry into the rape and murder of eight-year-old Asifa at a rally in Kathua last month ).”
The two ministers were made to resign by the BJP high command what was described as “ indiscretion” on their part .
PDP led coalition government’s spokesperson and PWD minister Naeem Akhtar told media after a crucial meeting of the party outside Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti’s residence that there was no threat to the government.
He ruled out PDP pulling out of the government on the failure of Delhi to resolve the Kashmir issue .
He said that the nation’s outrage over the Asifa rape and murder has set up new bonds between the peoples of the Kashmir Valley and rest of the country. That will help the State to overcome many other issues.
