Three newly-elected MLAs call for formation of non-BJP govt in J&K

MLA from Kulgam Mohammad Yousuf Tarigmi (CPIM), Hakeem Mohammad Yasin (PDF MLA from Khansahib) and Sheikh Abdul Rashid (AIP MLA from Langate) in a joint statement asked the non-BJP parties to come closer for the formation of the government in Jammu and Kashmir, after the Assembly elections threw up a hung verdict.

“Due to the recent devastating floods and the onset of severe winter, the people of the state are facing untold miseries while the administration is virtually unconcerned. In this scenario only the elected government can come to the rescue of the affected people by starting the stalled reconstruction and rehabilitation work,” the legislators claimed.

The MLAs cautioned the BJP against the imposition of its partisan interests, power-mongering and ignoring people’s sensitivities.

“The BJP’s efforts to capture power at any cost will increase the alienation of the Kashmiri masses and harm the already fragile political process,” they alleged.

The legislators appealed to the parties, who won a sizable number of seats on anti-BJP plank, to respect the mandate given to them, shun vacillation and try seriously for the formation of a stable government, which could respond to the real and genuine aspirations of the people. They reiterated their firm support to any non-BJP alliance, maintaining that it is in the “best interest of the state”.
