Jammu, Oct 19 (UNI) Facing pressure from the party leaders to pull out of the coalition government, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chief Patron Mufti Mohd Sayeed today said dialogues will decide PDP's fate in the coalition.

Mr Mufti, while talking to mediapersons before leaving for New Delhi, said the coalition was constituted on various objectives, which are positively being fulfilled for the past five years and they are laudable.

''The coalition was constituted for regional peace and equal development of all the three regions of the state and coalition is performing its job,'' Mr Mufti said, adding that PDP will hold talks with the party high commands before taking any decision.

Mr Mufti left for New Delhi to hold dialogue with UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi and Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad, who is already in the Capital.

''We will talk with the coalition partners. It is too early to say about the next move, but we are free to do anything we want to, if talks remain unsuccessful,'' he said.

Citing the example of the coalition at the Centre on the nuclear deal issue, Mr Mufti said even the UPA had to rethink on this issue but later the matter was resolved.

He denied any interference in the coalition functioning by the PDP and asserted that their party was creating no stumbling blocks for them.

He urged the coalition partners to sort out their differences and unite efforts for the coming Assembly elections. ''I was aware about the growing differences among them but the performance of the party leaders in the region will matter as Jammu will play an important role in the coming elections,'' he said.
