The Bharatiya Janata Party on Wednesday rebutted the allegations of horse-trading in Jammu and Kashmir by the National Conference leader Omar Abdullah, saying the party has not motive to indulge in such malpractices.
“Those who say that horse trading is being done, are the ones who actually do it. We have no motive to do any kind of horse-trading in J&K,” Ravinder Raina, J&K BJP chief told reporters in Delhi.
Earlier in the day, referring to former J&K deputy CM Kavinder Gupta’s remark that the BJP was “working on something”, Abdullah feared that the saffron party may indulge in horse-trading and breaks other parties to form the government in the Valley.
“What do you mean “we are working on something”? The only “something” would be to break other parties & make up the numbers to form a BJP Govt. Has the former DCM inadvertently spilled the beans?” he tweeted in response to Gupta’s statement.
The former J&K CM also demanded the state Assembly be dissolved and fresh elections in the Valley.
“The J&K state assembly should be dissolved immediately & fresh elections should take place as soon as appropriate. The former DCM has admitted that BJP can’t be trusted not to horse trade for Govt formation” he said in a series of tweets.
The Governor’s rule was imposed in Jammu and Kashmir for the eighth time since 1977 after the BJP on Tuesday pulled out of its alliance with the PDP.
