We thought to come together to stop the horse-trading and the disaster brought by BJP during last four years in Jammu and Kashmir and rest of the country. A consciousness is emerging between NC, Congress and PDP for formation of a secular alliance. Let you track down the developments and see how things move.”
Lending credence to the reports of a secular alliance between NC, PDP and Congress, the NC provincial president Nasir Aslam Wani told KNS β€œif Akhilesh Yadav of Samajwadi Party and Mayawati of BSP can come together against communal forces in Uttar Pradesh why can’t PDP and NC come together in Jammu and Kashmir to stop the rise of communal forces in the State. Who says Jammu will be discriminated if NC, PDP and Congress come together. All the three parties have representation from Jammu and Ladakh. National Conference is represented in the Jammu mainland and PDP is represented in border pockets of Jammu division. Similarly, Congress has representation from almost a dozen constituencies of Jammu region.”
