JAMMU: Congress today hit out at PDP, calling the delay in government formation in J-K an attempt by the party to "test waters" in the Valley, and asked Mehbooba Mufti to clarify what "new" confidence building measures (CBM) have been agreed upon between PDP and BJP.

"It was all a drama enacted by PDP over the issue of confidence building measures as a condition before BJP, to be taken ahead of government formation. It was aimed to test waters in Kashmir Valley where they have lost their ground," J&K Congress Chief G A Mir said.

He asked PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti to clarify the confidence building measures which have been agreed upon with BJP, over which she had delayed government formation in Jammu and Kashmir for over two months.

"She (Mehbooba Mufti) was instrumental in imposition of Governor's rule, she owes an explanation to the people of the state as to what new things she has been granted by the BJP-led central government over which she delayed the government formation for two-and-a-half months," he said.

The JKCC leader said that the new government to be formed would be "no different" from the one under Mufti Mohammad Sayeed and the only change will be in chief ministership.

"BJP has already cleared its stand that PDP will have the chief minister and the government will be formed as per Agenda of Alliance, what new things she has got," Mir asked.

"We will wait and watch for her to speak on what she was promised or granted by the BJP government apart from Agenda of Alliance," Mir said.

He said that BJP also created a drama with their statements that no fresh conditions would be accepted from PDP but ultimately they will be forming the government with PDP along with additional conditions.
