The BJP on Sunday said there were no differences between coalition partners in Jammu and Kashmir and the state government was “working well”.
“As far as the coalition is concerned, there are no differences among partners. The PDP-BJP government is working well. Everyone is performing his or her task.
“The chief minister is engaged in daily work... so are ministers and the deputy chief minister. There is no tension,” state BJP unit chief Sat Sharma told reporters here.
His remarks came ahead of Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti’s meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi tomorrow amid the deteriorating security situation in the state and reports of strains in the PDP-BJP coalition.
BJP general secretary and party in-charge of northeastern states and Jammu and Kashmir, Ram Madhav, also said there was “no rift in the BJP-PDP alliance”.
“We have extended all support to the state,” Madhav said.
According to Madhav, the party’s main concern is to bring “normalcy” in the Kashmir Valley within a few months.
The J&K BJP chief also regretted that PDP’s candidate lost in the legislative council polls.
The PDP had earlier accused the BJP of betraying it in the council elections, in which an associate member of the PDP voted in favour of the BJP candidate on assurance of a post.
BJP MLA Ravinder Raina hoped the meeting between Modi and Mehbooba will bring positive results for ensuring better law and order situation in Kashmir, restoring peace and speeding up the development works in the state.
