Srinagar: The PDP on Saturday appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to ensure that no unilateral decision is taken at any level that impinges upon the current constitutional arrangement and complexion of Jammu and Kashmir with the union of India.
In a meeting presided over by party president and former chief minister Mehbooba Mufti here, top PDP leaders urged Modi to give due consideration to the fact that people of the state have always reposed faith in the constitutional and democratic ethos of the country.
They said any unilateral decision to alter the constitutional framework governing the state would be a travesty.
"The party leadership hoped that the present dispensation headed by PM Modi will respect the sentiments of the people and their views on the current situation, which is perceived as grave enough to cause avoidable commotion," a spokesman of the PDP said.
He said the People's Democratic Party also urged the central government to dispel impressions caused by recent developments on ground.
"The party feels that it is moral and legal responsibility of the government to do so because the state is under the president's rule," the spokesman said.
"The meeting endorsed and appreciated the role of party president Mehbooba Mufti in forging unity across political spectrum on the issue of common concern and mandated the president to take any further initiatives in the direction of protecting state's identity and special status," he added.
The PDP leaders also appreciated the role and response of other political parties in Jammu and Kashmir which are also avowed to the protection of constitutional guarantees of the state, he added.
