Srinagar: Hours after being sworn in as the Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, Mufti Mohammad Sayeed made a controversial statement on Sunday, saying separatist Hurriyat Conference and militants allowed a conducive atmosphere for recently concluded assembly elections. Jammu Kashmir CM, Mufti Mohammad Sayeed â€œThe Hurriyat and militants allowed a conducive atmosphere for Assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir. I say take the Hurriyat and the separatists on board, they too have a viewpoint,â€ he said in a press-conference in Srinagar. Calling the alliance between the BJP and the PDP as an alliance based out of conviction, he said his priority in governance would be to root out corruption. On Pakistan, he said Prime Minister Narendra Modi deputed his foreign secretary for resumption of dialogue with the estranged neighbour. PDP leader Mufti Mohammad Sayeed Sunday took oath as chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir, heading a coalition government that brought the BJP to power for the first time in India's only Muslim-majority state. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP president Amit Shah and party leaders L.K. Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi witnessed the ceremony, more than two months after elections produced a hung verdict giving the PDP and the BJP 28 and 25 seats respectively.

Has BJP done the right thing to join PDP? Or is BJP ready to hear all this Anti national rhetoric for next 6 years? I am sure moving forward Media will question BJP for PDP's anti national stance. In each and every debate it will say BJP partner is praising pakistan & LET. I feel BJP should also talk very tough against PDP & i am sure PDP will not part away with BJP just like. BJP should not care about losing this alliance & government in J&K. It should not mellow down to PDP.
