BJP's shameless power play in J&K recipe for disaster, says Kapil Sibal


New Delhi, Nov 22: After Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Congress and National Conference (NC) announced their decision to stake claim to form the government in Jammu and Kashmir, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) slammed the alliance saying it is a combination of "terror-friendly parties".

Hitting back at BJP, Senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal on Thursday said that Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) "shameless power play" in Jammu and Kashmir is a "recipe for disaster."
