Srinagar, March 29: If sources are to believed, the alliance partner of upcoming state government, Bharatiya Janata Party wants the oath ceremony to delay till the 8th of April, the day Chaitra Navratri will start. These days are considered auspicious days in the Hindu calendar.
The sources have also claimed that a major reshuffle of portfolios within the party is expected and there are going to be some fresh faces as ministers.
Another reason because of which the party is delaying the process of government formation is because the senior leaders of the state want Prime Minister Narendra Modi to be present at the oath ceremony as he is travelling abroad in the first week of April.
Also, the PDP would like top BJP leaders from the Centre to throw their weight behind Ms. Mufti by attending the swearing-in ceremony.
