Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir Congress chief GA Mir on Saturday claimed that the BJP was making “desperate attempts” to “explore possibilities” to return to power in the state, days after pulling the plug on its alliance government with the PDP.
However, any attempt at government formation by indulging in “illegal and unconstitutional methods of horse trading and other foul means” will be met with tough resistance, he warned.
“Any such attempt by any quarter to defeat the constitutional provisions of anti-defection law will be met with tough resistance by the people who would not accept any back door entry to power,” Mir said in a statement here.
“The political forces and individuals need to desist from such tactics otherwise they shall be responsible for any further deterioration in the overall worst political and security situation,” the Congress leader added.
The BJP withdrew its support to the PDP claiming that its alliance partner failed to ensure equitable development and indulged in discrimination with Jammu and Ladakh regions.
