Jammu: BJP said that the Congress should withdraw its support to the coalition government in Jammu and Kashmir, if it believes that NC is a hurdle in the empowerment of Panchayats in the state.
"Congress must withdraw support to the coalition government, if NC is not cooperating in extension of 73rd and 74th amendment act in the state," BJP State Secretary Vibodh Gupta said, addressing party workers here.
His statement came a day after state Congress Committee President Saif-ud-Din Soz reportedly said that NC was creating hurdles in bringing amendments in the Panchayati Raj Act.
Accusing Congress of surrendering before NC, he said, "If NC is not cooperating, why Congress is not withdrawing support."
He said all Congress Ministers should resign if they are genuinely serious about strengthening of Panchayat Raj in the state.
