Srinagar: PDP president Mehbooba Mufti said Monday that implementation of the agenda of alliance and heading the new Jammu and Kashmir government were both important issues for her, but added that the central government would have to take steps for this to happen.
Addressing workers of her Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kupwara town, she said: “For me, the decision of forming an alliance with the BJP is a sacred legacy of my father, (the late) Mufti Muhammad Sayeed.
“But equally sacred for me is the implementation of the agenda of alliance w hich my father agreed to with the BJP.
“I have no issues with the BJP. My party’s alliance with the BJP is intact. But, my demand is for the central government to come forward and take steps so that my becoming the chief minister of the state benefits the people.”
Mehbooba reiterated that she has no ambition to become the chief minister for the sake of pomp and show.
“If I had any burning personal ambition, I might have become chief minister of the state much earlier, even during my father’s lifetime.
