New Delhi: Amid hectic efforts for formation of government in Jammu and Kashmir, CPI(M) on Friday said BJP is trying to "impose its political design" in the state which should be resisted in the "interest of the unity" of the state and safeguarding its special status.
"The formation of the government of Jammu and Kashmir has become complicated because of the nature of the result and a hung Assembly. The BJP, which benefited from the polarization in the Jammu region, is trying to impose its political design in the formation of the government."
"This should be resisted in the interests of the unity of the state and safeguarding its special status," a CPI(M) statement said.
CPI(M) has one MLA in the newly-elected 87-member Assembly. PDP, with 28 members, has emerged as the single largest party while BJP has 25 seats, NC 15 and Congress 12.
BJP is in talks to firm up a coalition government.
"It is imperative that a secular government is formed in Jammu and Kashmir and the secular forces should rise to the occasion keeping in mind the larger interests of the unity and integrity of our country," CPI(M) said.
Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, who is holding consultations with his party leaders of the state on government formation in Jammu and Kashmir had yesterday said that his party will play a "crucial" role whoever forms the government.
