Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister and National Conference president Omar Abdullah criticised PDP patron Mufti Mohammad Sayeed for his remarks that he "will not sell out to BJP."

Writing on microblogging site Twitter, Omar said, "Dear Mufti Sahib, please don't say you won't "sell out" b'cause you've already done that by helping BJP in the Legislative Council elections.''

Abdullah was referring to a Hindustan Times interview where Sayeed was quoted saying he won't "sell out and compromise of the alliance agenda.''

Abdullah criticised the PDP for demanding status quo on Article 370.

"You already "sold out" by demanding Art 370 status quo when you had sold "Self Rule" to people in J&K, please stop playing the martyr,'' he added.

The PDP-BJP are in a decisive leg of deliberation on government formation. The PDP has forwarded the draft of alliance agenda to the Prime Minister's Office about a month ago, sources in the party said. The structured dialogue can take place once the agenda gets a nod from the prime minister, they added.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to have the last say on the alliance between the People's Democratic Party (PDP) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for the government formation in Jammu and Kashmir.
