On the political crisis of Jammu and Kashmir, the Congress President Rahul Gandhi slammed BJP and PDP and said that there was an opportunistic alliance government in the state and this opportunistic alliance kept Jammu and Kashmir in ruin since last three years. The entire state is set on fire. Due to the greed of politics, many innocent people including our brave soldiers died in the valley. He said that Mehbooba Mufti Government did not take any steps to establish peace in the state. The UPA government had worked hard in the state and achieved the trust of the people, but for political benefit, the Modi Government completely overwhelmed the UPAs hard work. He said that even after President’s rule in Jammu and Kashmir, loss of livelihood will continue.
Prior to Rahul Gandhi, Senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said that there is no question of joining hands with the PDP. He said that BJP is a national party and they should not have a coalition with PDP. The regional parties should have been left for the coalition. Azad further said that whatever happened in Jammu and Kashmir was good. This has given some relief to the people of the state. Ghulam Nabi Azad, further said that BJP had destroyed Kashmir but now they had to withdraw.
The opportunistic BJP-PDP alliance set fire to J&K, killing many innocent people including our brave soldiers. It cost India strategically & destroyed years of UPA’s hard work. The damage will continue under President’s rule. Incompetence, arrogance & hatred always fails.

“BJP and PDP political greed caused the sacrifice of hundreds of innocent civilians and soldiers in the valley. Whenever there was a Congress government in Jammu and Kashmir, there was a growth in the development. BJP is responsible for crime in Jammu and Kashmir, but the charges are being imposed on PDP”.
Three years BJP and PDP alliance government of Jammu and Kashmir fell on Tuesday (May 19th) due to withdrawing support from BJP to the alliance. BJP general secretary Ram Madhav said at a press conference in Delhi that after meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party chief Amit Shah, we have decided to leave the alliance in J&K.
