National Conference’s working president Omar Abdullah said on Monday that Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti was making last-ditch efforts to save her party from breaking apart.

Speaking to reporters after calling on Governor N.N. Vohra at the Raj Bhavan here, he said: “We know she (Mehbooba Mufti) has gone to Delhi to make the last ditch effort to save her party from splitting by forming a government.”

If all has gone well during her meeting with BJP president Amit Shah then what is she waiting for? If she takes so much time to decide on her next move what kind of chief minister would she prove to be when she has to shoulder very tough responsibilities?

The former chief minister said he had called on the governor to inform him that the NC opposed horse-trading of all types.

“If they (PDP) are unable to form the government, the only democratic option is holding mid-term polls,” he said, adding “the state had still not fully recovered from the horse-trading of 1984,” when an NC government headed by his father Farooq Abdullah was brought down through defections engineered by elder Abdullah’s brother-in-law, G.M. Shah.
