Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad on Tuesday said there was no question of the Congress party allying with the PDP to form government in the state saying the “question does not arise”.
“I had told the Prime Minister on the floor of the House that they were committing a Himalayan blunder by forming government in alliance with a regional party PDP. Today I have been proved right,” Azad added.
The BJP Tuesday afternoon announced that it was pulling out of the alliance with PDP saying “terrorism, violence and radicalisation had risen and fundamental rights of the citizens were under danger in the Valley.”
