Jammu and Kashmir
JAMMU, MARCH 12: The Union Government is unlikely to announce any Kashmir-centric confidence- building measures at this point of time even though PDP president Mehbooba Mufti has still haven’t given single to the saffron party.
In order to get the package politically and financially the center has asked Mehbooba to take over as Chief Minister of the state.
On March 8, while addressing party workers at Kupwara in north Kashmir, Mehbooba had termed her father’s decision of going with the BJP as final.
Highly placed sources said BJP leaders made it clear to the alighening party that there was no reason to announce any package for the state at this juncture when there was no political government.
It had been assured that the Centre would accept all genuine demands of the PDP leadership but the only pre-condition was that Mehbooba should take over the command of the state.
