The BJP leader, however, ruled out any alliance with the People's Democratic Party (PDP), the current opposition party, saying his party's views have little in common with the PDP's agenda. He said the BJP could not support the PDP's slogans like 'Muzaffarbad Chalo' or talks of dual currency.

On Monday, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and NC leader Omar Abdullah ruled out any post-poll alliance with BJP over the latter's stand on issues like Article 370, Uniform Civil Code and Babri Masjid.
