Although the BJP described the meeting as a courtesy call, sources in the two parties told Media Sources that Nirmal Singh assured Mehbooba Mufti of continued support to head the PDP-BJP coalition for the remaining period of the state assembly.
“Mehbooba Mufti, however, told Nirmal Singh that she would not stake claim to power unless she had an assurance from the highest quarters in the BJP on time-bound implementation of the agenda of alliance between the two parties,” a PDP source said.
Mehbooba Mufti and BJP leaders are scheduled to meet Governor N.N. Vohra at Raj Bhavan on Tuesday evening. Vohra called the PDP and BJP leaders to discuss the prospects of government formation.
The state has been under Governor’s Rule since January 8 after Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed passed away in Delhi following a brief illness.
