No political alliances to seek power: PDP

Saturday, 22 March 2014 - 9:54am IST | Agency: ANI

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), chief Mehbooba Mufti Sayeed, on Friday said that forming an alliance with political parties for power is not on their agenda ahead of the forthcoming polls and they would rather persuade them to come up with a resolution on the Kashmir issue.

While addressing media persons in capital Srinagar, she (Mehbooba) said that power was not the main agenda for her party in the upcoming polls.

"Parliamentary elections for PDP, is not about making alliances to be in power. We are not interested into who is going to form the government there, but we have a definite agenda which we will follow, that is, to bridge the trans deficit, to use the parliament forum as well as the forum outside for the resolution of Kashmir," said Sayeed.

Peoples Democratic Party has been blaming the government led by Omar Abdullah's National Conference (NC) party for failing to resolve the problems in the state and increasing tensions in the region.

PDP has accused NC of just pleasing their ally, the ruling Congress at the Centre.

"I said we are not talking about any alliance for power but as far as a resolution is concerned we are going to approach all the political parties in Delhi. Not only the ones who have been in power, like the UPA (United Progressive Alliance), the NDA (National Democratic Alliance) or the third front but also those parties which are in opposition. So our agenda is very clear- no power agenda," Sayeed added.
