"While the PDP has declared that the PDP-BJP 'Agenda of the Alliance' is a 'sacred document' and that PDP continues to be in awe of the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, there is an inexplicable delay in government formation," Omar wrote on his Facebook page last night.

Omar, the working president of the opposition National Conference, was reacting to the PDP statement issued after the meeting of its Core Group here last evening.

"From the statement issued to the media at the conclusion of today's (Sunday) meeting by the PDP, it has become evident that the PDP-BJP alliance stands, that no conditions have been set by the PDP, that no negotiations are being conducted and the formation of the new PDP-BJP government is a foregone conclusion," Omar said.

He said the general perception about the delay in government formation was that it is being done to salvage some bare minimum credibility for the PDP and "to create a smokescreen of stiff morality.

"The people of Jammu and Kashmir continue to be deprived of an elected government while two political parties with a combined majority continue to be in an alliance -which is bizarre and unprecedented,” he added.
