Even as BJP-PDP alliance in Jammu and Kashmir is tottering on brink, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley today asked PDP leader Mehbooba Mufti to make up her mind.
“The fact is that the PDP leader Mehbooba Mufti has to really make up her mind,” Jaitley told Shekhar Gupta, former Editor of Indian Express in a conversation organized by his media start-up ‘The Print’ which he launched with television journalist Barkha Dutt.
Noting that the PDP and BJP are ideologically quite distinct, Jaitley said, “Our support bases are different, our core beliefs may also be different. But then there was one commonality that the people of J&K threw up a hung verdict”.
“As far as the BJP is concerned, we stand by the J&K package which the Prime Minister announced in toto. Every word will be implemented. Secondly, as far as the agenda for governance is concerned, between BJP and PDP, we are fully committed to agenda items we had agreed on,” he said.
