Srinagar: Even as the political deadlock over government formation in Jammu and Kashmir continues, National Conference (NC) spokesperson Junaid Mattu on Wednesday said that it is unfortunate that despite emerging as the single-largest party in the recently-concluded state assembly polls, the government is not being formed.
"It is unfortunate that despite having the strength of 55 (Congress, PDP, NC) they are not forming the Govt. It is unbecoming of a single largest party," Mattu told ANI.
Mattu made these remarks shortly after Peoples Democratic Party chief Mehbooba Mufti met the state's Governor over the issue of government formation in J&K.
The PDP chief met Governor NN Vohra earlier this morning and later told reporters that her party is in no hurry to cobble up a formation.
The Assembly Elections threw up a hung verdict with PDP emerging as the single-largest party with 28 seats in the 87-member House.
BJP emerged as the second-largest party with 25 seats followed by National Conference at 15 and Congress with 12.
Smaller parties and independents won seven seats.
So far no single party, or combination of parties, have staked claim for formation of the government.
