Professor Amitabh Mattoo, one of India's leading thinkers and writers on international relations and the Chief Executive Officer & inaugural Director of the Australia India Institute Friday claimed that National Conference and the PDP will never form an alliance for a variety of reasons including the fact that they compete for the same space.He said that the NC will not be a partner in any new government. “No one today can afford to touch it. It is the only untouchable party today, given its performance in the election (even though marginally better than predicted) and its track record over the last 6 years. The challenge for the NC will be to keep its flock together over the next 6 years.”

Matoo according to CNS said that the PDP will form the next government with Mufti Muhammad Sayeed as chief minister.  “The PDP's greatest challenge is to how to reach out to Jammu and Ladakh. Two possible ways for PDP to reach out to the BJP rebel from Udhampur, and make three of its Jammu stalwarts Ministers straight way including Rangeel Singh and a Sharma and a Thakur and make them part of the Legislative Council in the next 6 months.”      

Former Vice Chancellor Jammu University said that the BJP will sit in opposition and offer outside issue-based support to the PDP and seek delimitation and greater empowerment of Jammu.“The Congress will seek to be part of the government, but may settle for supporting the PDP from outside,” he said.He according to CNS said that Sajad Lone, Hakim Muhammad Yasin, M.Y Tarigami (if his party allows him), and Engineer Rashid will be part of the new government.He said that the new government in Jammu and Kashmir will have the full support of Prime Minister Modi and his government on all developmental issues.“This government will, however, have the shortest possible honeymoon period, and will have to show that it means business within the next 6 months,” he said.
