"Like me many people in south Kashmir got dejected once they aligned with rightwing party and started killing people. For BJP restoration of peace and order in Jammu & Kashmir is a priority supreme to all other party interests", he said. If @rammadhavbjp is true to his word that there is no question of horse trading & clearly no new alliances are being formed then the assembly should be dissolved. It was a far cry from the BJP's ideological mooring in the region tracing to the days of the Praja Parishad, a Jammu-based political organisation that had launched in 1949 a historic four-year-long agitation against J&K prime minister Sheikh Mohammed Abdullah. She, too, couldn't cool down the PDP-BJP political friction that only gathered heat on the administrative levels too. "BJP's policy on Kashmir will never change".

The National Conference vice-president had reacted to remarks of senior BJP leader and former deputy chief minister Kavinder Gupta that the party was "working on something", indicating that the BJP was exploring alternatives for government formation in the state. "Keeping it suspended has encouraged dalals", Mr Omar wrote. BJP General Secretary Ram Madhav, who is also considered as the architect of the BJP-PDP alliance in Kashmir, said it is "untenable" for the saffron party to remain in power with Mehbooba Mufti-led PDP in Kashmir.

Singh, the Lok Sabha MP from Lucknow, also reiterated the Modi government's resolve to ensure a complete end to militant activities in Jammu and Kashmir.

The party will not leave any stones unturned in sending out a message that the BJP took the people of the state for granted and that it failed to observe "coalition dharma".
