STATE TIMES NEWS
AKHNOOR: As stand-off over government formation in Jammu and Kashmir entered 16th day, State Congress on Thursday appealed to PDP and BJP to shed “reluctance” and enter into an alliance to provide a “popular government to lead the state forward”.
Former minister and senior Congress leader Sham Lal Sharma said that those who have been given mandate by the people of the State should form the government.
“All the developmental works are at standstill and certainly need a popular government to lead the State forward,” Sharma said.
The former Minister for PHE, Irrigation and Flood Control, asked the parties to “avoid political vacuum in sensitive and troubled State like ours.”
Sharma said that Congress has already extended its unconditional support to PDP for a popular government formation.
The two-time Congress MLA also expressed serious concern over the situation at border with Pakistan after a spate of ceasefire violation.
