PDP’s decision to ally with BJP was like consuming 'A Cup Of Poison': Mehbooba Mufti
Srinagar, July 28: Former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday said the PDP's decision to enter into an alliance with the BJP was like consuming "a cup of poison".
Addressing a rally, Mufti said her father, Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, had joined hands with the BJP for peace and stability of Jammu and Kashmir. She insisted that her father didn't form the government with the BJP for not only building roads and providing electricity to the people of J&K.
Indicating that the PDP's alliance with the BJP was not her decision, Mehbooba said after the death of her father, she was not interested in continuing with the coalition.
Mufti also welcomed overtures by Imran Khan after his Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf's emerged as the single largest party in Pakistan and appealed to PM Narendra Modi to reciprocate.
"I appeal to (Prime Minister) Narendra Modi to take the opportunity to develop strong friendship with Imran Khan so that relations between the two countries could be strong, and other problems could also be resolved through dialogue."
