“PDP & NC boycotted local body polls last month because they had instructions from across the border,” Ram Madhav said.
New Delhi| The debate over the hasty dissolution of the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly has heated up. After scores of Kashmir leaders criticized the governor Satya Pal Malik‘s move ahead of the PDP’s claim to the government with the support of NC and Congress, the Bharatiya Janata Party has jumped in the battleground to defend the governor.
Commenting on the matter, BJP’s national general secretary Ram Madhav on Wednesday slammed both PDP and NC. He said that both the parties received instructions from across the border (Pakistan) to stake claim to form the government in the bordering state. Ram Madhav said, “Probably they (PDP and NC) had fresh instructions from across the border to come together & form govt.”
He further expressed the possibility that this can also be the reason why the parties boycotted the elections held in the state earlier. “PDP & NC boycotted local body polls last month because they had instructions from across the border,” Madhav said.

Defending the actions of the governor to dissolve the assembly, he said that the actions of both the parties prompted the governor to look into the matter.
Amidst the ongoing talks of a possible PDP-NC-Congress alliance to form a government, governor Satyapal Malik has dissolved the Assembly on Wednesday. Earlier, PDP had written a letter to the governor presenting the claim to form the government. PDP had sent this letter to the governor’s office through fax. However, in strange circumstances, the Governor did not receive it. Malik later cited technical issues with the Fax machine as the reason. Former Chief Minister of the state Mehbooba Mufti tweeted and informed that this fax has not been received from the Governor’s office nor the governor is answering the phone.
