Soon after the BJP pulled out an alliance with the ruling PDP in Jammu and Kashmir, the Congress today ruled out any tie-up with the PDP, media reports said.
Senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said here that the BJP had committed a “Himalayan blunder” by forming a government with the PDP.
He said the BJP, a national party, should not have allied with PDP, a regional player.
“The regional parties should have been allowed to form an alliance among themselves,” he told reporters.
The alliance has devastated the state, be it economically or socially, and has left Jammu and Kashmir in a state of “ruins”, he said.
