NC will align with devil to keep PDP out of power: Mehbooba

Opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president and MP Mehbooba Mufti on Saturday slammed Chief Minister and National Conference (NC)  chief Omar Abdullah’s post-poll alliance offer to the BJP by saying, “The NC can align even with the devil to keep PDP out of power.”

Addressing roadshows in Beerwah constituency of central Kashmir’s Budgam district, Mehbooba said, “Omar Abdullah is now so much panicked by the prospects of a PDP government taking shape in J&K that he is once again seeking refuge in the lap of the BJP by offering to align with them in any post-poll arrangement.”

The firebrand PDP president claimed that the Omar government failed on every front and “that’s why the people’s anger against him has exploded through ballot and the first phase of elections has established that people have realised the power of vote and are using it to bring in a change.”

“But Omar Abdullah, in his desperation to somehow survive politically, doesn’t hesitate in talking of an alliance with BJP even though during the parliament polls he stated that he would leave the country if Modi was elected as PM and Farooq (Omar’s father) had said anyone voting for Modi should be pushed into the sea,” she added.

Ridiculing Omar’s claim that he would develop Beerwa, the PDP MP questioned, “How can someone who could do nothing for his constituency as chief minister for six years be useful as a mere MLA in another constituency?”
