Srinagar, Dec 30: It is left to Congress to decide whether to align with National Conference (NC), or not, said People's Democratic Patron (PDP) Mufti Mohammad Sayeed. He dismissed the speculation of PDP to support Congress to form govt.
"There has been no communication with either the UPA chairperson or the Prime Minister," he said but added he expected that as a coalition partner the Congress should talk to them morally. We are ready to sit in the opposition and play the role of a 'constructive oppostition', party chief Mehbooba Mufti said.
"There have been no talks about supporting or not supporting..We have left the decision to the Congress since we do not make the numbers together (to form a government)," party chief Mehbooba Mufti said. "we are ready to sit in the opposition. We have a party, we have an agenda, we have our programmes to follow,' Mufti answered.
"So once they (National Conference and Congress) form a government, we are ready to play the role of a very constructive opposition. There should be confusion about it," Mehbooba said.
Mehbooba's remarks assume significance as NC and Congress go into talks to form the next government in the border state under the leadership of Omar Abdullah.
