The defeat of the BJP at the hands of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Delhi saw resonance on Kashmir's polscape on Tuesday when the National Conference asked the People's Democratic Party (PDP) not to forge any alliance with the BJP post-Delhi results.
"Mufti Mohammad Sayeed should draw a few lessons from what has happened in Delhi and understand that the PDP cannot conceal its lack of spine and integrity behind smokescreens anymore. The myth of BJP's invincibility under Narendra Modi has been completely shattered as the party has been literally routed in Delhi," said NC spokesman Junaid Mattu.
The NC spokesman said it is unfortunate that Sayeed, one of the state's most shrewd political minds, had to lead a historic surrender in the durbar of Amit Shah in Delhi for the lure of the chief minister's chair.
"PDP has done the exact opposite of what AAP has done in Delhi. Objectively one cannot deny that AAP has led the people of Delhi to a historic victory of humility over arrogance. On the other hand, the PDP has stabbed the people of J&K in the back and has sold its mandate to make Mufti Sayeed the chief minister," he alleged.
Former chief minister and NC working president took to Twitter asking PDP and BJP to form a government in Jammu and Kashmir with a jibe though.
Omar took to social website Twitter and wrote, "Finally dear @BJP4India & @jkpdp can we PLEASE get a Govt in J&K now? You said wait for Delhi & we waited. Now we don't want to wait longer."
While commenting on Delhi election results, Omar said the Congress has a lesson in it.
"If there is lesson for the Congress in this it is that Modi & BJP aren't unbeatable if you take the fight to them, don't wait for mistakes," Omar tweeted.
Taking a dig at BJP chief ministerial candidate for Delhi, Kiran Bedi's comment on her defeat, Omar said, "Wow @thekiranbedi "I haven't lost, @BJP4India has lost so let them introspect." Did I hear that right????"
In Jammu, PDP's Sayeed, while commenting on the Delhi results, said, "If there ever was a need for course correction for BJP the voters of Delhi have brought it home to them loud and clear."
He said the results in Delhi are a reminder of the fact that India is a country of diverse religious and cultural strains and the people of the capital city have restated that fact in the most emphatic way.
"Prime Minister Narendra Modi must take lead in disciplining these elements who had started conveying a different idea about the idea of India so that the country forges ahead along its ethos of tolerance, diversity and communal harmony," said Mufti.
The PDP and the BJP are coming together to form next government in state after a fractured mandate. Jammu and Kashmir is under the governor rule these days.
