NEW DELHI — After the assembly elections results in five states came out on Tuesday in which three BJP-ruled states people rejected BJP and gave mandate to Congress, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of J&K said results showed that political awakening is on the rise in the country.
“People rejected the mandir-masjid politics, results show political awakening on the rise in India,” the PDP quoted its president Mehbooba Mufti as saying on its Twitter handle. She was referring to the loss of the BJP, which was an ally of the PDP till June this year, in the Assembly elections in the five states.
“Clearly the mood of the nation rejects the brazen attempts at polarising society, rejects those who promise in words but plot in action, rejects those furthering their politics by pitting the people of one community against the other,” the PDP said.
The Congress on Tuesday wrested three states from the BJP and is set to form government in Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh. BSP and Samajwadi Party of Akhilesh Yadav have extended their support to Congress in forming government as in Madhya Pradesh Congress is short of 2 seat for absolute majority.
