SRINAGAR: The PDP on Tuesday said it was "not disappointed" over the decision of the Congress to join a government led by National Conference in occupied Jammu and Kashmir and maintained that the people of the state have given it a mandate to play the role of a "good, constructive opposition".
"We are happy that we are finally going to see a democratically-elected government sooner than later and we have always been saying that people have given us a mandate to play the role of good, constructive opposition and we will do that," PDP president Mehbooba Mufti said shortly after the announcement in New Delhi that NC chief Omar Abdullah will be occupied Kashmir’s new Chief Minister.
PDP withdrew support to the Congress-led government in June, leading to resignation of the then Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad followed by dissolution of the held Kashmir Assembly and promulgation of Governor's rule in the State.
