Sikh body urges PDP, BJP to form govt

Srinagar: All Parties Sikh Coordination Committee (APSCC) Tuesday asked Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) to form the next government in the state.
In a statement, APSCC chairman Jagmohan Singh Raina said, “The leaders of both PDP and BJP should keep the issues that can lead to problems in the daily governance in the backstage that will ensure that the government runs smoothly with minimum hiccups during the next six years.”
“It is important that an astute and veteran politician like Mufti Mohammad Sayeed should become the chief minister of the state. He is the only politician among the mainstream political parties that who can take over the reins of the state at this crucial juncture. He needs support to run the government and same should be provided by BJP,” said Raina.
The APSCC Chairman said since PDP has got the mandate from Kashmir and BJP from Jammu it is imperative that both these parties come forward and form the next government in the state. He said that PDP should avoid alliance with National Conference and Congress since both these parties have been reduced to minorities on political horizon of Jammu & Kashmir.
