National Conference on Friday said fresh elections in Jammu and Kashmir will be an "undesirable eventuality" and injustice to the voters and reiterated its "unconditional" support to the PDP in formation of government in the state.
NC spokesman Junaid Azim Mattu said, "While that (elections) remained a technical possibility, it would be an undesirable eventuality," adding that NC's offer of unconditional support to the PDP is remains and it is for the PDP leadership to take a call on it.
Reacting to the imposition of governor's rule in the state, Mattu said the onus of government formation lies with the PDP.
"Not just due to the fact that PDP is the single largest party but because it has two credible offers of support, from NC and I believe Congress as well, to form a government," he said.
Mattu said it was for the BJP and PDP to decide whether forcing another election on the people of the state would be an injustice to the voters. "People turned up in such numbers to take part in the elections with the hope of getting an elected government. There is no clarity on what is going on between BJP and PDP on government formation ... predicting a fresh election is kind of impossible," he said.
