Jammu, Jan 16: With uncertainty looming large over the continuance of PDP-BJP alliance, National Conference (NC) leader Farooq Abdullah today said his party is ready to consider a tie-up with the saffron party for government formation if such an offer is received.

"If such a proposal comes, then NC will call a Working Committee (meeting) and debate over it.

If such a situation arises, NC can think over it as we have not closed the doors. Our doors are open," he told reporters here when asked to spell out his party's stand if it gets a proposal from BJP for forming a coalition government in the state which is under Governor's rule.

In the 87-member Assembly, BJP has 25 MLAs while NC has 14 legislators. His comments came as uncertainty prevailed over the fate of PDP-BJP coalition which ran government headed by Mufti Mohammad Sayeed for 10 months before his sudden death on January 7.

With regard to the ongoing political uncertainty in the state, the NC patron and former Chief Minister blamed 27-member PDP for it. "Uncertianity has been created by PDP as BJP is ready to form the government and God knows what PDP is thinking, I hope they end this and the government would continue," he said.
