The BJP Wednesday said the best option in Jammu and Kashmir is to have fresh assembly polls at the earliest and added that the present assembly cannot produce a stable government.


The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) said on Twitter, soon after the state governor dissolved the assembly amid claims by rival formations on forming a government, the state needs a firm administration to deal with terrorism and not a combination of terror-friendly parties.

Keeping the security scenario of J&K in mind, can it afford horse-trading and instability, the party said in its Twitter handle.


''The proposed alliance between the INC and the PDP broke up even before it was formed. They have taken contradictory positions on dissolution. One supports it and the other opposes it,'' stated another tweet.

The Jammu and Kashmir assembly was abruptly dissolved by the Governor Wednesday night hours after the PDP staked claim to form a government with the backing of rival National Conference and the Congress followed by another bid from the two-member People's Conference which claimed the support of the BJP and 18 legislators from other parties.

The dissolution was announced by Governor Satyapal Malik in a communique released by the Raj Bhavan.
