SRINAGAR: The Jammu and Kashmir Congress on said the party does not have any design to be part of government formation in the State and called for dissolution of the Legislative Assembly.
"PDP-BJP was unholy and unethical alliance and it was bound to break. We have been telling from day one that this is an unholy alliance. This government was bound to break one day and it has finally broken," State Congress chief Ghulam Ahmad Mir told reporters after meeting of party leaders in Srinagar.
He said PDP-BJP government was utter failure on all fronts. "The BJP and PDP cannot escape the responsibility of bringing the all round miseries to people due to their opportunist and wrong policies."
He said the PDP and BJP have pushed the State to Governor's rule. The Governor's rule was imposed in the State on June 20, a day after BJP withdrew support from the Mehbooba-led PDP-BJP government in the State citing deterioration of law and order and security situation. Mir ruled out supporting any effort to form government in the State.
"We don't have any design to form government in the State," he said. The State Congress president asked Governor N N Vohra to dissolve Legislative Assembly, which has been placed under suspended animation after imposition of Governor's rule in the State.
"Placing Assembly under suspended animation raises eyebrows. It means that options of horse-trading are being explored. The Governor's rule should not be for a longer time," Mir said. He said if any party have numbers, they should come forward and stake claim on government formation.
"If no party has number then Assembly should be dissolved to end horse trading," he said.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of Mehbooba Mufti is facing revolt from disgruntled legislators and there are speculations that the group of the party legislators may form a block and join hands with the saffron party to form government in the State. Earlier, AICC General Secretary Incharge J&K State Ambika Soni, Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad, former
Minister Prof Saifuddin Soz , state Congress chief G A Mir, legislators, ex-legislators and senior leaders and other senior party leaders attended the meeting called to discuss to the prevailing political situation in the State.
