Four days after the Jammu and Kashmir elections threw up a hung assembly, the BJP sent out signals that it would neither give up on attempts to form the government in the state nor compromise on issues such as Article 370 to strike a deal with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

“In the existing scenario, a new government in J&K is not possible without the BJP,” Home Minister Rajnath Singh told a meeting of BJP workers in Lucknow on Saturday.

In Jammu, state BJP president and MP from the Jammu-Poonch Lok Sabha constituency, Jugal Kishore Sharma, said the BJP was in no hurry to push the pace of developments.

“BJP is not going to take any step in a hurry,” Sharma said. “Whenever we go to the Governor, we will go after thorough deliberations among us. We have kept all options open; a decision will be taken after consultations with the party leadership.”

Governor N N Vohra on Friday sent separate letters to the PDP and BJP, inviting them for discussions on forming the government.

The BJP also indicated that it was unwilling to concede the PDP’s demand for an assurance on safeguarding Article 370 and revoking AFSPA. “Modiji has called for a debate on it. While a decision on it will depend on consensus among people, let the debate go on,” said a senior party leader who declined to be named.

    Our Home Minister has the knack of Yap Yaping at the wrong time. Should he not keep quiet and see how the situation develops? In the midst of separatists and stan threat ir is better for Rajnath Singh to keep his big mouth shut!

      BJP will get sympathy and resepct for sitting in opposition or let it go President rule! NOOO compromise. Sitting in opposition is better or President rule! Article 370 is a National issue! 

If BJP or any political party becomes Buzdil/Darpok/Darial or not willing tocare/sacrifice for nation (WRT article 370), people will kick them out likethey threw away Advani though BJP did good in the past and he used a slogan asIndia shining that people did not want to buy or care! Article 370 is anational issue and it must be sped soon!! Support that party which caresfor nation. People coming to US on visitor visa can buy house/property butIndian citizens are not allowed in own country! Progress of country isimportant and so are national issues. Congress was not willing to sacrificetheir Gaddis for too selfish reasons and people of India buried those politiciansdeep down! Nehru did foolish mistakes just to appease and he was too stubbornand ziddi type politician.. he is no more in this world but cancer he createdis still going on! He also allowed part of Kashmir to be looted by Pak andChina and did not listen generals who wanted just 6 hours to get it back!Rather he choose to knock door of UNO - "Uncle ji.. our Kashmir has beenlooted.." What a shame to buzdil politicians who did not have any vision.Congress never wanted do do good things for national pride because of JUST votebank. Muslims of Kashmir have to support otherwise how can we consider themgood Indian citizens. Kashmiri pundists have been thrown away from their ownstate and they must be allowed to go back to their homes. Those who lootedtheir property and houses should be prosecuted or jailed! There should be samecivil code for all- Hindus should also be allowed to have as many wives.. andeach wife should allowed allowed to have as many husbands. Otherwise make asame civil code for all - and no more appeats to any community (whetherminority or majority).

            ONLY MEANT FOR PDP and BJP ***** (NC and CONGRESS PLEASE EXCUSE !!)Both PDP (in Kashmir) and BJP (in Jammu) have secured state's verdict. In accordance with vote percentage and no. of seats, basic common sense is the PDP-BJP alliance partner choice there is no other option. When parties say 'multiple options are open' that is just non-sense approach and deviating from mainstream verdict of both regions in the state where two different parties have won. So, both PDP and BJP should sit together on table and discuss on both common agenda for next 6 years and any controversial / ideaological points (Art 370/AFSPA etc) and sought them out.
