New Delhi, June 24 (IANS) The CPI-M said on Sunday that the BJP's decision to end support to the PDP can create greater political instability in Jammu and Kashmir and also appeared aimed at sharpening communal polarization ahead of the next Lok Sabha polls.
A Communist Party of India-Marxist statement said that the Bharatiya Janata Party's move "at this particular moment has the potential of creating greater political instability".
"It signifies the total political failure of the BJP's approach in Jammu and Kashmir," it added.
"This alliance was untenable since the beginning. It was an alliance between forces that never saw eye to eye on any issue but came together in an act of sheer opportunism to share the spoils of office."
Warning that the situation in Jammu and Kashmir cannot be allowed to deteriorate further, the CPI-M said that there was widespread apprehension "that the RSS-BJP will embark on a more hardline position under the pretext of combating terrorism.
"The effort appears to be to sharpen communal polarization not only in Jammu and Kashmir but to aid the process of consolidating the Hindutva communal vote bank elsewhere in the country in the run-up to the general elections."
