BJP has even sent feelers to PDP seeking details about the Confidence Building Measures, which are to be taken up central government. A core PDP group has been assigned the task of building demand around core CBMs and it includes Muzzafar Hussain Beigh, Naeem Akhtar, and Nizam Ud Din Bhat while Mehbooba heads it.
RSS leader Ram Madhav is scheduled to meet Mehbooba in the coming days to discuss government formation but it is unlikely that BJP would be ready to accept all the demands being put forth by PDP. The BJP is ready to support the agenda of alliance but sources said party might find it difficult to accept the new demands being put forth by it’s coalition partner.
Major demands being put by PDP include immediate return of power projects, revocation of AFSPA, package for flood hit people, jobs for unemployed youth essentially Kashmiris. It remains to be seen whether these demands would be considered by BJP high command or no but one thing is clear that BJP has been put on the mat by PDP, which has proved astute in it’s dealing with the saffron party.
