Mehbooba in Delhi to meet PM on govt formation


Jammu & kashmir

PDP Czarina Mehbooba Mufti is back in Delhi to discuss govt formation with the PM in J&K after playing hardball with BJP for weeks. What might have prompted her was NC leader Omar Abdullah’s meeting with state Governor N N Vohra in Jammu Monday, whom he reportedly told that his party was not in favour of fresh polls in the state but he would prefer that over horse-trading.
While BJP has said it will not accept new conditions for government formation, the PDP has maintained it only wants the BJP to “respect the Agenda of Alliance” between the two when they got together in the state a year ago to form a government.
Omar said “There is an effort right now to gather support independent of Mehbooba Mufti. I think rushing to Delhi is her last ditch effort to save her party because she realises if she does not form the government on the terms and conditions set by BJP, her party will split and if her party splits, then she will be in a much weaker position than she is today.”
