Srinagar: As the deadlock over government formation in Jammu and Kashmir continues, the National Conference on Monday held a core group meeting at former chief minister Omar Abdullah's residence to discuss future policies.
Talking to ANI, NC leader Mohd Akbar Lone said that the party will not give support to the BJP.
“We will not join hands with the BJP, no matter whatever happens,” Lone was quoted as saying.
Lone, however, hinted that the National Conference was ready to join hands with the People`s Democratic Party (PDP) if the latter talks about the welfare of the people of the state.
"If the PDP talks about regional aspiration then we as a regional party, as a primary party we need to join hands with such people who work for the unity of the people of Jammu and Kashmir and we are ready to help them," he said.
The J&K Assembly elections, held in December last year, saw PDP emerge as the single-largest party with 28 seats, followed by BJP with 25, National Conference with 15 and Congress with 12 seats.
As there are no signs of an agreement between political parties, Jammu & Kashmir has been put under Governor's rule with effect from Thursday.
