Srinagar: A PDP MLA has stoked controversy by saying that only a Muslim can become the Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, a view from which the party quickly distanced itself.

“There are certain parties which are trying to forge an alliance with communal elements and want to impose a Hindu chief minister here. But let me make it clear that Jammu and Kashmir is a Muslim-majority state and can be ruled by a Muslim chief minister only,” Peerzada Mansoor, MLA from Shangus, said at a workers convention in Anantnag district in the poll-bound state on Tuesday.

The Peoples Democratic Party legislator said installation of Hindu chief minister would prove to be detrimental to the political resolution of Kashmir issue.

“Kashmir is a sensitive place and a conflict zone. So, if a Hindu chief minister is installed, it would have a bearing on its political landscape and other issues may crop up,” he added.

The PDP, however, said it was the individual leader's response to constant posturing by BJP and Congress on the issue.
