Difference of opinion over AFSPA revocation exposes PDP-BJP alliance: Mir

SRINAGAR: The difference of opinion on AFSPA by both PDP and BJP has exposed the “so-called common minimum programme” of coalition government, state Congress on Friday said.
“Tall claims of PDP with regard revocation of AFSPA and its commitment with people have proved a hoax. JK PCC chief G.A. Mir, according to a statement, said while addressing a meeting of Office bearers, legislators, district presidents of Kashmir Valley.
He said that contradictions in the approach of both BJP and PDP towards Jammu and Kashmir have alienated the people of all the three regions of the state. “The NDA government doesn’t trust PDP. PDP, which has failed on every count, has also sacrificed their core agenda for the sake of power,” he alleged.
He said that statements issued by Defence Minister and Home Minister “give clear indication of divisions between PDP and BJP. “Their so called CMP is nothing but a power sharing formula,” he said.
Mir also castigated Home Minister, Rajnath Singh, for his AFSPA remarks and sought clarity from the government of India with regard to meaningful dialogue process. “State government should call a special session of Assembly, so that the issue confronting people can be discussed threadbare for resolution,” he added.
