Addressing a presser here at his Humhama residence, Mir told reporters that following the unconstitutional steps being taken by State and centre administration in Jammu and Kashmir, PDP and NC had shaped a formula to form the government, which was also supported by the Congress.
However, he said that after PDP claimed a stake for the formation of new government, the State Legislative Assembly as dissolved ‘undemocratically and unconstitutionally”.
Mir added that the dissolution of assembly after political developments indicate the frustration of Governor’s bosses in New Delhi, saying that they don’t want secular like-minded people to form the government in Jammu and Kashmir. “The alliance between NC, PDP and Congress didn’t suit BJP and the central government, therefore they directed for the dissolution of assembly,” he alleged.
“The situation could have been different if BJP could have claimed the stake for the government formation” he said, adding that nothing is wrong with the people of Jammu and Kashmir but everything is wrong with the system put in place by New Delhi in the State.
JKPCC chief further alleged that Governor Satya Pal Malik kept the assembly in suspended animation to “facilitate horse-trading” by the BJP and its allies to form the government, saying that the dissolution of assembly in undemocratic way has sent a wrong message to the people.
He added that the political parties had earlier demanded dissolution of the assembly but the voices remained unheard. “Governor in a recent had said that he can run the assembly in suspended animation till 2020 but the only thing is that he was facilitating BJP and its allies in Kashmir to arrange numbers through horse-trading and allow them to form the government,” Mir alleged.
