Reacting to the recent statement of former Chief Minster and Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) patron Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, wherein he had stated that the state congress is reluctant in appreciating its alliance with PDP during the past, Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh congress committee (JKPCC) vice president Ghulam Nabi Monga Thursday said the Congress-PDP coalition was ‘historic’ and ‘prosperous’.
Talking to Kashmir News Service (KNS), Monga said that the people of the state are the best judges to decide the tenure of any government here. “We agree that certain landmark steps were taken during PDP-Congress coalition in the state and the state was taken to the new horizons of development and prosperity. The people are the judges in the state; they know who has done what.”
Stating that no agreement for the pre-poll alliance for the forth coming parliamentary polls in state has been signed between National Conference and state congress, Monga claimed that the congress party cadres in the state demand that congress must contest parliamentary polls on its own across the state.
Monga refuted the recent news reports wherein it was mentioned that the state congress had asked National Conference (NC) for one parliamentary seat in valley.
He told KNS that the Congress workers across valley have observed that there is strong base and following of congress party and that the triumph is expected for the forth coming parliamentary polls. “We have not asked for any seat from NC and that the reports that spread recently are false.”
Monga further stated that the final decision on any pre-poll alliance in the state with NC has not been taken and that it is up to the congress high command to take decision for the future strategy. “We have not reached to that state where the consensus could evolve about the alliance. The High command will do the same in consultation with the congress leadership here.”
