BJP's National General Secretary Ram Madhav has alleged that Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah were instructed by Pakistan to form the government in Jammu and Kashmir, and that is the reason Governor Satya Pal Malik immediately dissolved the Assembly.
Madhav told ANI that Peoples Democratic Party and National Conference boycotted local body polls last month because they had instructions from across the border.
"Probably they had fresh instructions from across the border to come together & form govt.What they did prompted Guv to look into the whole issue," he added.

Meanwhile, Omar has lashed out at Madhav on Twitter and sought an apology. "I dare you @rammadhavbjp ji to prove your allegation. You have RAW, NIA & IB at your command (CBI too is your parrot) so have the guts to place evidence in the public domain. Either prove this or be man enough to apologise. Don't practice shoot & scoot politics." Madhav while responding to Omar's tweet asked him to take it in good humour. "Just take it in your stride @OmarAbdullah Not questioning your patriotism at all. But d sudden love between NC n PDP n d hurry to form government leads to many suspicions n political comments. Not to offend u," he tweeted.

Omar again dared Madhav to prove his allegations and said that claim of BJP that National Conference boycotted the local body elections in J&K was at Pakistan's behest was a serious charge which he would not take in a lighter vein.
No, misplaced attempts at humour won't work. You HAVE claimed my party has been acting at the behest of Pakistan. I dare you to prove it! Place the evidence of your allegation of NC boycott of ULB polls at Pak behest in public domain. It's an open challenge to you & your Govt. https://t.co/7cumKwKxuM

On Wednesday, former Deputy Chief Minister and senior BJP leader Kavinder Gupta claimed that coming together of two arch political rivals was actually a result of ISI's plot that was hatched recently.
Gupta also reportedly said that both Abdullah and Mufti are acting "at the behest of Pakistani agencies" to keep the nationalist forces out of the valley.
"First, they stayed away from the municipal polls, which was a duly democratic process and now they are conspiring with Pakistan," he added, according to Times Now.
He further said that both Abdullah and Mufti always impress upon talking to Pakistan and which is the reason why Pakistan wants them to form the government in J&K.
The BJP also lashed out at both National Conference Peoples Democratic Party and Congress calling them terror-friendly parties.
After the J&K Governor passed the orders of the dissolution of the Assembly on Wednesday, the BJP tweeted, "J&K needs a firm administration to deal with terrorism and not a combination of terror-friendly parties."
It further said, "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. Keeping the security scenario of J&K in mind, can it afford horse-trading and instability?"
